PISTOIA For those who love being enchanted not only by the architectural and artistic beauties of the old town but also by its most curious and unusual stories, I always suggest to explore the city centre upside down! Why? Pistoia is known for having and preserving for centuries a rather bizarre toponymy. Here is an example that fascinates us in a particular way!

Via del Can Bianco

PISTOIA is a city that more than others had fun over the centuries giving original, bizarre and extravagant names to its streets and alleys. For example: who knows the history of the white dog?! and who has ever noticed the bas-relief in stone that portrays, at the beginning of Via del Can Bianco, this curious local hero?! :)

ITALIA nel MONDO. Raíz italiana è un’Associazione che permette ai discendenti di emigrati italiani di rinsaldare un legame con le proprie radici. Abbiamo intervistato Marina Gabrieli, la Presidente, per capire meglio di cosa si tratta e scoprire le opportunità del cosiddetto “turismo delle radici” o “turismo genealogico”, un settore ancora emergente ma con grandi potenzialità!

Una cartolina di Valentina Aufiero

ITALY, summer 2018. Just returned from a few off-line and on-travel days, the first thing we want to do is sending you some postcards from our Mediterranean Sea. Or better, we want to share with you the project of a creative collective based in Pozzallo (Ragusa, Sicily) that this summer has looked at our coasts and imagined that other people wanted to support those who save human lives. In this article, we tell you about the idea and the collaborative action behind the hashtag #soloincartolina and we invite everyone to participate! Dear Interior Minister, Dear Italian Government, Dear European Parliament: greetings and kisses from Italy.
