My experience on the Floating Piers on Lake Iseo was not the happiest. It was very tiring and a bit unsuccessful.   The Floating Piers is a work by the Bulgarian-American artist Christo on Lake Iseo. It consists in 3 kilometers of polyethylene boardwalk (covered in a yellow tissue) that connects Sulzano, a small village on the shores of the lake, to Monte Isola and another small and private island. The work of art is free, open...

Conegliano celebrates 1000 years of history   Conegliano is a medieval town in Treviso, Veneto, that this year celebrates 1000 years of history.     I visited Conegliano on Sunday June 19th with other Instagrammers.

At first there were only some houses, then a castle...

Last Monday (April 25 is Liberation Day, a National Holiday in Italy) I took a walk on the hills near home, in San Zeno of Arzignano, during the local “sagra”, a food and cultural festival that takes place every year in my village.     The “sagra” is spread in two weekends and it’s very well organized, considering San Zeno is a very small village. Every day there’s something different in...

The Weekly Market


Posted By on Apr 11, 2016

Recently I have re-discovered how pleasant it is to go to the street market.   Here in Arzignano the appointment is every Tuesday morning. I remember as a student, I liked to go to the market when I was on holiday, it was an occasion to meet my friends that went to different schools. When I finished school I lost interest in the market, also because I was either in Bologna at uni or at work.     I have always considered...

Yesterday in Arzignano I participated to one of those walks that are organized around Italy all year round, but mainly in Spring, when it is not too cold nor too hot, and nature is blooming, the perfect conditions for this type of activities.   It was a walk among cherry blossoms, old unbalanced houses, amazing wild flowers and ancient villas up for sale.     Usually at these walks there are paths of different lengths;...
