The beginning of the new year means a new starting. We’re entering this 2019 with a new publishing project: the first issue of e-borghi travel, a series of digital free tourist guides that have the soul of a magazine and are dedicated to the villages, the geographical areas and the slow-tourism of our beautiful country. We’ll be present on the Web each month with a theme subject available in English and Russian as well that will be focused on a specific topic and we’ll lead the readers through an interesting journey starting with the mountains. It’s going to be a journey featured by very famous places and unexpected new ones: the year 2019 is the National year of the slow-tourism to discover Italy the same way as sipping a good meditation wine: little by little you’ll be enjoying every single moment. The pace of hiking is constant and the villages are similarly set on a natural canvas like the “great cathedrals of the earth with their gates of rock, pavements of clouds, choirs of steam and stones and altars of snow» (John Ruskin). We will take you with us to Sauris in Friuli-Venezia Giulia and Lusèrn, Folgaria and Lavarone on the Cimbrian Alpes, to Valtellina through a route that is laid out between Teglio, Tirano, Mazzo di Valtellina and Grosio then on the Etna, on Abetone and on Gran Sasso then we’ll head towards the forests of Sila. And this isn’t over since if you leaf the e-borghi travel magazine you’ll be able to find many hints and ideas for your next adventures: the different destinations, the villages and the areas will be described and they will be available for all tastes and for the “four seasons” and they will come with practical advice and suggestions related to the facilities, the food & beverage sector, the shopping together with a careful attention being paid to the local traditions. There’s more than that, there are the legends, the curiosities, the delicacies and the food specialties. You’ll be able to go through the columns like “Holidays out of place” in a relaxed and easy way. We are not going to reveal anything in advance, the unknown will catch your attention and your feelings will leave on their journeys.
