Locarno (Ticino) – PHOTO September’22 [2]

I’ve been to Locarno before. I came back this summer … When I arrived I noticed an incredible thing: there was not even one person out of thousands of people in the city who wore the mask …
The city always leaves something special inside the soul … It is a city on a human scale overlooking a lake shared with Italy. The border to the Italian territory is not far away .. despite this it does not seem like a city in Italy or Switzerland. Sometimes there are indescribable impressions – this is one of them …

Verbano (Piemonte) – PHOTO September’22 [1]

I’ve been coming to Lake Maggiore a few times already … it’s a magical place. A lake surrounded by the mountains of the alps full of trees. The lake is cut by the borders with Switzerland and the Italian part is in turn divided into two regions (Piedmont and Lombardy).

Although less prestigious than the lakes of Garda and Como, Lake Maggiore is of fundamental importance for a large part of the nation because two of the major tributaries (Ticino and Toce) of the largest river in Italy depart from it: the po!

Obviously the area is super crowded with tourists but I was able to catch a few moments in the early morning, before dawn.

Sabaudia (Latina) [3] – PHOTO October

other photos of sabaudia .. these photos in particular show the lake near the coast. The town, as you can see, can boast of a lot of greenery, even if for most of the year the heat and humidity make the area full of insects. The city, founded by Mussolini, has wide streets, designed and engineered according to the canons of that time. Although it was October (and especially the small town that does not boast a great tourism) I was able to see some visitor-tourists.

Sperlonga (Latina) – PHOTO October 2021

I arrived in Sperlonga on an autumn afternoon. Despite the poor light and the desolate beaches, Sperlonga has distinguished itself for being one of the most beautiful towns on the Latina coast. Perched on a hill overlooking the sea, it has beaches on both sides, which are protected by promoters both on the sea and inland. This makes it one of the hottest areas in central Italy. In addition, there are also nearby lakes that contribute to making the area humid but with mild winters, comparable only to those of Sud od Italy.

GAETA (Latina) – PHOTO October 2021

I visited Gaeta on an October afternoon, when the sun’s lights were fading into the twilight of the sunset.
Gaeta is a town almost attached to Formia, the latter a much larger city with a very large port.
Gaeta has the characteristic of being under the slopes of Mount Orlando, overlooking the sea and overlooking the beach. The road from the north to get to the city is very suggestive and at times recalls that of the California coast …

Terracina (Lazio) – PHOTO October 2021

Terracina is a very large town on the coast of Latina. It has a very long promenade with wide sidewalks and cycle paths next to the road, where people walk or jog. I was there in October and although it was already autumn there were many people walking along the promenade. The town is one of the mildest in Lazio, and perhaps also in southern Italy (excluding the islands). The town is located more close to Naples than to Rome and in fact it is affected by the Neapolitan influence.
