The proximity to some of the most famous beaches in the world may have made Cagliari famous, but the capital town of Sardinia offers so much more than unspoiled coastlines and postcard-pretty landscapes.
It’s an authentic city, worth a visit all year round.
We were walking towards the pizzeria when it hit me: on that first day apart, I missed them. Our week-long trip around Sardinia had come to an end on the day before, and so, on that day, I had been wandering around Cagliari all by myself. Never in that week had I felt so emotional.
‘I’m sending a postcard to my gran’ commented Wasp Elder, looking at the winding streets and the red-ish shades of the postcard-pretty Acquapendente, an enchanting village in that area of Northern Lazio called ‘Tuscia,’ which once was inhabited by Etruscans.
Nestled in the unspoilt nature and not so far from the picturesque Bolsena Lake, this little village is the evidence that you don’t need to go to a metropolis to hunt some great street art in Italy. In Acquapendente, urban art perfectly fits with ceramics, red bricks, and old stones.
“Your inbox will never be empty.” I don’t remember where I read this, but it definitely came across my mind several times since when I decided to write a post about how to spend the summer in Rome like a local would. Determined to show you my favorite things to do in Rome in the summertime, I’ve been going out a lot and attending many events, yet the list of places to go in Rome was becoming longer and longer. And it’s still growing! But this post won’t be of any use if I publish it in September, now will it? ;)
To say that Lucy McLauchlan’s first mural in Rome was challenging is a gross understatement. From a long, extenuating bureaucratic process to poor weather on the “grand opening,” everything that could have gone wrong in the production of Lucy McLauchlan’s mural has.
However, here we are now, celebrating the wrapping of the second wall of this second edition of the Forgotten Project.
