Lords and ladies dancing and knights in shining armor! Italia abounds with Medieval towns and castle – the perfect backdrop for the many annual Medieval festivals. Come one, come all, the banquets are ready and waiting!
National anthems stir many thoughts and feelings. Inciting anything from healthy love of country to overly aggressive patriotism. For music has an extraordinary ability to ignite hearts and passions. And Song of the Italians, Italy’s national anthem, is no exception.
Colledimezzo is another of Italy’s villages that seems like a trip to the past. Nestled in midst of Abruzzo’s mountains, this tiny but quaint and picturesque village is well worth a visit! Which is just what we did with some friends last summer, during a break between lockdowns.
