PRATO “Some travels seem more important than others, we would even say more remarkable. No need to go far far far away to find beauty and to discover great things in the world. It’s what we have learned while we were visiting Prato. An apparently tiny city in Tuscany, 20 minutes away from Florence. Tiny in appearance, but big with all the things it offers, in terms of history, food, and obviously of culture. As we thought would be just a classic trip about as we usually do, discovered way more.” Here is the story by Jennifer Padjemi & Mélody Thomas, Parisian journalists and friends, founders of What’s Good Newsletter! #CCTravellers2016

MACERATA Il progetto Anime Di Strada – “L’arte ufficiale della rivoluzione” a Civitanova Marche – aggiunge un altro tassello a quello che, anno per anno, sta facendo del quartiere periferico di Via Verga un vero e proprio museo a cielo aperto.

E come sempre anche tutti gli abitanti del quartiere!
