Lucky encounters (cycling together)

Lucky encounters (cycling together)

When your great impulse and the Cosmos conspire to facilitate the encounter with characters who have, like you, the same vision (or/and beyond) of a situation, you are amazed. We know that it is not easy to have the time, modesty, humility, and good fortune to meet...

Long life to the bike. The best cure for sadness.

Long life to the bike. The best cure for sadness.

Yes, I know it is not a good time, both personal and general. We started from this sea and these wild beaches and then got lost in the beautiful pine forest behind it, not yet scented with summer spirits but with its peculiar light. Crossed the fine vineyards of...

The charm of abandoned places

The charm of abandoned places

Little Jerusalem in Tuscany

Little Jerusalem in Tuscany

Little Jerusalem in Tuscany. "If you can't go to Jerusalem, Jerusalem will come to you!" This is in short what Pope Leo X established with his bull in 1516. San Vivaldo, already a refuge for the hermits and a sacred place for some time, was handed over in 1500 to the...

Thoughts about riding a bike in Tuscany

Thoughts about riding a bike in Tuscany
