Sestri Levante



Ultimamente ho poco tempo per le mini perciò non ho niente da mostrare di mia produzione.
Vorrei allora condividere con voi uno dei più bei paesi della Liguria. A 30 min di macchina da Genova si può trovare un piccolo paradiso: Sestri Levante.
Un promontorio, due baie dai nomi romantici: la Baia del Silenzio e la Baia delle Favole. Una manciata di case colorate e la magia è fatta.
Fu fondato dai Romani che lo chiamarono Segesta Tiguliorum in onore di Segesta, dea delle messi ma fu Hans Christian Andersen, nel 1835, a dare il nome Baia dell Favole al piccolo golfo.
E' sempre stato amato dai turisti di ogni epoca ma per fortuna ha mantenuto il suo carattere autentico.
Amici miei, respirate un po' di aria di mare e pensateci per le prossime vacanze.
E non dimenticate di ingrandire le immagini.
Sestri Levante
Lately I have litte time for minis thus I have nothing of mine to show to you.
Then I'd like to share with you one of the most beautiful villages of Liguria. Only 30 min drive from Genoa you can find a small paradise: Sestri Levante.
A promontory, two baies with romantic names: Silence Bay and Fairytales Bay. A handful of coloured houses and the wizardy is done.
It was founded by Romans who called it Segesta Tiguliorum after Segesta, goddess of the Harvest but it was Hans Christian Andersen to give the Fairytales Bay its name in 1835.
It has always been loved by tourists of any age but it has luckly kept its own true character.
My friends, breath a bit of sea air and thinkabout it for the next holidays.
And do not forget of clicking on the pics to make them bigger.

My goodness, is that your Casa Rossa at the corner? Casa Rossa , hey, that is also Casa Rosa-nna, right?? So clever!

Always meant to ask you, what is giuggiola?

Your pics always make me want to pack my bags (with my stitching of course) and run off to Italy (like what's that girl in what's that movie, who ran and build a house in Italy after her husband dump her...)..
