Happy Thoughts

Post by ghiro on Sun Aug 07, 2016 9:38 pm

Maybe it's the rather good Rosso di Montalcino, or maybe it's the balmy August evening, but I'm feeling very positive about life in Italy tonight.  Aren't those of us here so very lucky!  Smile 

But what exactly is the magic?  The ever enchanting landscape?  The never disappointing food?  The locals - friendly and welcoming (in general)?  The hilltop villages and other architecture?  The amazing art in galleries, churches and elsewhere?  The usually pleasant, but sometimes amazingly exciting, weather?  

Or a mixture of all the above, and more, that adds up to that indefinable Italian concept/ideal that is La Dolce Vita?

Purely in my own opinion of course, it is not only all the concepts from Ghiro's post that make up La Dolce Vita but also the positive attitude of those of us who live here to make the most of their lives. There are always niggles re bureaucracy etc but it is the same the world over so no point in wallowing in gloom and doom - a good Marche wine makes life even better of course!
