Bird’s eye view of La Morra

Just after the sunrise Piedmont looks amazing, especially on sunny day. The sun looks over waving hills, the rest of fog disperses light softly. Let’s have a look this time on the video made by dron in La Morra.

The temple of cinema in the Mole Antonelliana

Cinema – a word of illusion, incredible stores, but also a cruel show business reality. Watching a good movie I indentify myself with main characters, sometimes I miss their adventures, however for what I appreciate a good movie is possibility to forget about the reality. When lights start to illuminate a cinema hall and a caption appears I feel like awake from a dream and only then I start to come back slowy to the presence, still analyzing in my head the end and the plot.

Italian car on Polish land

My adventure with Fiat Coupe’, or better… with its lovers, has started two years ago. My blog, despite helping me in promoting my favorite region in Italy, it turned out to be a way to meet new fiends. First I met guys from Fiat Coupe’ Klub Polska during their visit at Chris Bangle (Fiat Coupe’ car designer) in Clavesana near Alba, then I took part in events dedicated to 20th anniversary of this car in Turin.

La dolce vita made in Italy

Browsing recently my photos (and there are quite a few ) I realized of the strength of Italian design and creativity. This inspired me to write an article about Italian lifestyle, which attracts so many people from all over the world. Tourists immediately fall in love with cuisine, breathtaking landscapes and always cheerful inhabitants of the Apennine peninsula.
