Omne trinum est perfectum. That is “every trinity is perfect” at least according to the Medieval dictates and the Pre-Socratic philosophers’ beliefs. That’s the way I’d like to introduce the third issue of e-borghi travel which is entirely dedicated to the parks, the chests of treasure to be discovered in all their beauty. Villages and territories that are perched between the sky and the mountain peaks or on the top of the cliffs overlooking the sea, the icons of Italy that look like the confetti spread over the countryside areas, the lakes or the rivers’ shores and are framed like perfect paintings in the open air when they portray the details that are highlighted by the different shades of the light and their personality. We are using this amazing palette of colours to describe the National Park of Gran Paradiso in Valle d’Aosta and the protected areas of Ossola in Piedmont, to capture the light from the rocks of the Ligurian Sea and the National Park of Cinque Terre. On the East there’s the regional Park of Mincio softened by the shape of the streams of the slowest Lombardy while on the Lazio coastline there’s the National Park of Circeo. Along the coast of Puglia we’ll lead you through the National Park of Gargano then we’ll go through the Park of Gallipoli between the Tyrrhenian and the Adriatic Sea and we’ll also explore the Little Dolomites from Lucania- Basilicata and we’ll reach Civitella Alfedena in the National park of Abruzzo, Lazio and Molise. Finally the National Park of Nebrodi will be the protagonist in Sicily, it is the biggest protected area of the ancient Trinacria. Let’s jump from the masterpieces of nature to the masterpieces of art through the exhibition “The nature of Arp” scheduled from the 13th of April to the 2nd of September at the Peggy Guggenheim’s Collection in Venice: we’ll offer you a preview of the different aspects of the symbolic and suggestive art of Dadaism. We aim at giving you suggestions and ideas for your next holidays or a week-end in the name of the slow tourism in the most charming Italian parks surrounded by the beauty and the nature. So let the adventure begin.
