My mountains

Sometimes I think about how lucky I am to live in Genoa, where you can go from the waves of the sea to mountains exposed to the wind. It takes little, it takes very little. Usually, as a passion, I put on my running shoes and just go. A short walk on the asphalt to […]

Boccadimagra Blog Tour

Giorgio’s right. He’s 27 years old and has a passion for his homeland that is moving: this blog tour should be called ‘Open Mouthed’ (‘A bocca aperta’) given the beautiful and surprisingly unexpected landscapes! I’m really intrigued to participate in the #boccadimagra blog tour because it’s one of the parts of Liguria which I don’t […]

#blogtourportofino: let’s go!

Enthusiasm is sky high and I must confess that the backpack has already been ready for some days. There’s not very long until tomorrow morning when I’ll be taking the train to Santa Margherita Ligure. That’s where my #blogtourportofino will start, with other travel bloggers, my faithful travel companions for the next two days. The […]

An open-air gym, and the Butterfly Path

My desire to recharge and disconnect from the daily routine is huge. I only have half a day of holiday but, fortunately, I live in Liguria, one of the regions in which it takes little to always feel slightly on holiday. Given the wonderful spring day I decided to walk a trail in the Parco […]

Liguria is #fashion – part two: Cervo

It doesn’t matter if who says it is a strategic expert or a Sunday coach: it’s simply well-known that you never change a winning team. And it’s for this reason that nice and early Barbara and I go out searching for one of those places which, once visited, enter your heart and stay there forever. […]

Liguria – A Land of Fishermen and Fishes!

The Slow Fish Festival starts next month in Genoa; a worthwhile and influential event combining ecological and environmental issues with tradition and the pleasures of good food. And what better place to hold this international gathering than Liguria, a region steeped in the history and culture of the sea… A worthwhile and influential event combining […]

Monesi, freeride!

The weekend. We get a little group together for a day of skiing. An attentive look at the weather forecast: heavy snow is forecast for Sunday and Monday and Tuesday there’s a window of good weather. Where are we going? Somebody suggests Monesi di Triora. “What, wait, Liguria?” I would never have thought that in […]

Fabrizio De André’s Genoa

No classic tourist guide trip. No app to hand. To relive the spirit of Fabrizio De André’s city, the ‘authentic’ Genoa of Genoese like him, I got caught up in places, smells and tastes which have traces of the notes of his songs. Not by chance “At every bump on the road you pass, at […]

Vico Casana and the scent of tripe

It’s not a trip for everyone, that which I made today, in the alleyways of Genoa. Vegetarians and the diet obsessed would be horrified, but for those who want authentic tastes, this means a date with ‘rustic’ cooking with a truly evocative name: tripe. Cheap and tasty like never before, this old Ligurian dish is […]
