ART AND CULTURE

A country rich in Art and Culture.

Italy, a land of art and history. Italy has been, since antiquity, the centre of history, culture and art.

The Italian art developed in the Italian peninsula since prehistoric times. During the Roman Empire, Italy was the center of an artistic culture that for the first time created a universal language for the homogeneous world of Europe and the Mediterranean. In some periods of Italy was the country’s most artistically advanced in Europe.

In Italian culture, life and art are inseparable.

Italian artists created great masterpieces of art and inspired artists all over the world.

Italy is largely homogeneous linguistically and religiously but is diverse culturally, economically, and politically.

Which is also what makes it so interesting to the eyes of visitors from all over the world.

We have the typical big cities full of art world-wide known, such as Rome, Florence, Naples, Venice, Verona, Pisa, Lucca, but especially if you’re not a first time visitor, and you get to stay here more time, we deeply suggest to go beyond that.

It is hard to believe, but every little town has its own piece of art to show.

If you step in the countryside, and go visit some little villages, you would be amazed by the chances of running into some very fine pieces of art, that happen to be way less famous than the rest, because of the quantity of it that Italy carries.

Discovering new and less famous villages, means also getting to know Italy’s culture, which is something that changes every region you go. It’s not only about the classical North-South differences here, but way more than that.

Diversity in Italy has happened way before the Globalization, in fact Italy’s full of dialects, some also recognized as second language.
Do you need to hear more? We’d say: “Come and see it with your eyes”.
