An ancient charm and a territory to discover
« If I were a livornese, the real ones that say “please” and speak with his open hand, moving his fingers, as if to see that in their words is not cheating, I would like to star in some Scalo house of Venice. Not already in the neighborhoods, squares, streets penciled sweet, with the help of the team and compass, sorted by the architects of the Grand Dukes and generous, but in this neighborhood called La Venezia from Livorno, here in the heart of the city old, a few steps from the Carceri, Monte Pio, by Bottini dell’Olio. What a wonderful life it would be that simple and happy life. »
