Italy

Located in the center of the Mediterranean basin, home of art and culture, where the story is not only in museums but it could be hidden under every stone. First in the list of nations with the largest number of World Heritage Sites. History and art are set into a frame that varies from the high snowy peaks of the Alps, to the sunny and warm Tuscan hills till the white sands and crystal clear waters of Sicily and Sardinia.

- It's Just Snow -
 

There is something hypnotic about snow. If you think about it for a moment the snow is one of those natural events that do not create any noise, of course I'm not referring to a snowstorm, in that case the wind howls as the alpha male of a pack of wolves. Think about it .... the snow itself is silent, does not generate any noise during the fall or impact if not almost imperceptible. Envelops the world in silence, everything is muffled.

The snow itself is lonely or, if you prefer, self-sufficient. There is no other time  when the whole world

seems composed of one thing and one thing only.

- The Pearl made of Stone -
 

  The village consists of the Castelletta oldest part, dating back to the Middle Ages, enclosed inside the castle and a subsequent expansion on the north. Even today you can walk the ancient, narrow streets lined by small houses of only two floors and built mainly of stone and wood. Currently the small village counts 49 inhabitants.
