This morning was an astonishing one. I’m trying to get the maximum relax from my off-days, but Whatsapp and Facebook still won..they have been my alarm clock, so I woke up and – as I usually do – I opened up my balcony: I roused in 2 minutes and I felt so lucky to have an absolutely amazing view in front of me:
Valsinni, a little village in a valley in the South of Italy, is the town where a river named Sinni flows under its bridge, which is one of the particular feature of this landscape. The 1st main one in fact is an old little Aragonese castle built since the Middle Age, where – the legend says – a wonderful lady used to live: it was her cage where she started to write poetry and be in love with the natural elements of the surroundings..the river, the utopian sea, the mountains.
Here you are some other details of the valley, the old town centre on the top side and the new one in the valley:
Take a walk on the wild side, tale-a-walk on the wild side helps you remember about past, think about present and maybe future. A walk on the wild side is what you should do at least once a month, if you’re able to.
This walk should be taken in your hometown, the place where you spent your childhood, the place you enjoy when you was a girl, the place you hate while your university-life because it offered you nothing to enjoy, the place you know love and you can’t wait to be there.
This is a bit of the wildness that everybody should have in life: fresh air, sun, green, yellow too, and time to enjoy it.
Some of the places remind you about your childhood, they were where you used to go with your parents for Sundays pic-nics or just to have a walk in the wild genuine nature, and they are still attracting people at Sundays.
Pristine wild landscapes sorrounding your day, rivers, flowers and relax. Enjoy your peaceful moments before going back to the ordinary life.
#NoteOfTheDay Walk on the wild side from Lou Reed’s 1972 second solo album, Transformer, (after leaving the Velvet Underground).
It was a long time I really wanted to spent hours breathing fresh air far from the city, totally sourrounded by nature, fields, trees, no noise. Hence I finally got to go for a walk up a little mountain!
The first meeting I had was totally amazing 😍 with there little and hardworking mules!!
It was like an old frame from the past, staring at those little mules giunge up the mountain and discovering they are still used as a transfer way it’s unbelievable! So cute 😊
Here you are some other shots I took trying to go near them while they were having their lunch break:
…and these are the landscapes of the Southern Italy countryside:
This is a little story about a little area in the South of Italy, a little region named Basilicata (maybe named after ‘basil’ or ‘basilica’ – the ancient Roman churches). This region is not very big and economically advanced, that’s why is not so common and some people still don’t know it exists. But thanks to the last award for ‘Matera 2019 bid book – the European city of culture‘ it’s becoming even more interesting, popular and beautiful.
And this is also why in the next New Year’s Eve there’s gonna be a great event in its biggest square – Vittorio Veneto Sq.
There’s gonna be the biggest concert of Italy with a lot of national and international artists, there’s a huge stage in the centre of the square where the old fashioned part of the city starts: Sassi, these very ancient rudes where people used to live. Now they are part of the World Unesco Heritage property and they have been relocated and restored as Italian bars, pubs and art galleries, souvenir shops and narrows that look like if you are in a painting:
It will be the first time and the first chance for the city to be on TV and have a so prominent role. Hope it will play a great role by showing its charming landscape and pieces of the past…
