View from a old window – Palazzo Ducale, Genova


Doesn’t it seems that the window is from my book to the outside?

Boccadasse – Genova

While I was wandering in the web I found this beautiful photo (unluckily the copyright was not specified, so if you know who is the author write me to add it, please) of my city, that made me dream with my eyes open: the colours, the sea, the atmosphere…or better: one of the many atmospheres that you can breathe in different spots of Genoa.

Camogli is a little sea town at just half a hour drive from Genova; in the summer it’s full of people, but at this time of the year tourists are gone and you can enjoy better the deserted historical centre on the sea and the small port. Continue reading



Mankind can’t resist to change nature. We want to feel home even in the depth of a forest, we are scared of being lost, alone, forgot, of disappearing. This thing tells a lot about our weakness. We create things for others to leave a sign of our passage and to make them come back. I find this sweet.
