The Italian Riviera (2023)


Elegant and carefully crafted writing inspired by late 19th century travel literature characterises the more than two hundred and fifty pages of ‘The Italian Riviera. From Ventimiglia to Arenzano. An artistic, historical and gastronomic guide. 2023’, a work that aims to tell the reader about the soul of the locations along the Ligurian coast and selected inland villages, shedding new light on their history, nature, monuments, traditions and typical products.

An arched land between the coolness of the mountains and the warmth of the sea, western Liguria – the northernmost of the Mediterranean lands -, eternally illuminated by the sun that gives life to one of the richest wild flowers in Italy and Europe, is a succession of colourful seaside villages bathed by the waves and small mountain villages that make their appearance amidst shining olive groves and stone walls.

An ancient region, whose unspoilt nature, healthy climate and marvellous views won the hearts of the British aristocracy at the end of the 19th century, today to be rediscovered in all its incomparable richness of colours, flavours and scents.
