Radici profonde nel grembo di un monte conservano un sepolto segreto di origini – e quello per cui mi riapro stelo di pallide certezze.

Valsassina

The vast expanses of green meadows, the air sparkling and clean, the paths inside the winding woods, the peaks that whiten with the first snow. And, invariably, the genuine flavors to be enjoyed gathering around a table set.

A few kilometers from the city, “our” Valsassina is rich in treasures to discover. Pasturo, Carozzi’s city, is a place very dear to the history of Italian literature. In fact, here Alessandro Manzoni sets the house of Agnese, mother of Lucia Mondella, main character of “the Bethroted”. And here was born in 1912 the poet Antonia Pozzi, who devotes beautiful verses to her beloved mountains.
