An ultimate journey

All english, german and french travelleres who visited Italy during the 19th century Grand Tour could not imagine that “the garden of Europe” would be fiercely outraged some decades later.

After the Second World War especially, tons of reinforced concrete were scattered all over Italy bringing about ruin.

Former Government brought in a new law to legalize most evident abominations and to save builders’ reputation.

What does it mean, now, “beauty” in Italy?

  2. an heritage lost in the cement

  3. Povero Castello d’Altomonte.
    Purtroppo non e’ il primo e non sara’ l’ultimo.

  4. You’re right!

    The monuments’ condition in not likely to change!

    How awful it is!

  5. Penso che il patrimonio artistico sia la vera ricchezza del nostro paese che nessuna globalizzazione può mettere in crisi. E’ un peccato trascurarlo così…

    I think that the artistic heritage is the true wealth of our country that any globalization can reduce. It’s a shame to neglet it in this way…

  6. du romantisme preque irreel de venise a la grandeur du colysée en passant par la beauté de la baie de naples, l’Italie est et restera toujours pour moi le plus beau pays du monde…et il me reste encore tant à découvrir!
    Préserver cet héritage artistique ainsi que la nature qui le met si bien en valeur est du devoir de chacun…

  7. je crois que notre héritage artistique, dévasté par le ciment, n’est plus que l’ombre de lui-même. Le gouvernement passé a relancé la mode des bâtiments illégals; les italiens se sont servi de l’occasion.

  8. beppe, guarda


  9. I want to show You the idea o a genius, some decades ago…

    Please watch

  10. such an important contribute!!!!!!!!!

  11. Hello

    Great book. I just want to say what a fantastic thing you are doing! Good luck!


  12. Hi here,

    thanks a lot.

    please, spread the question everywhere!


  13. The best approach is to create a simple system like a starter
    project. You can use water for your garden to reduce the waste, but 360 liters is usually
    to much for a traditional sized garden. The system will still only require the addition of hardly any water each week.

  14. May I just say what a relief to find someone who really knows what they are discussing
    online. You certainly understand how to bring a problem to light and make it important.
    More and more people must read this and understand this side of your story.
    I was surprised you aren’t more popular because you certainly have the gift.
