where I usually live:

Milano is a big city in the north of Italy.

We like to run early in the morning with a hot cappuccino in the hand.

I love strolling in fresh and decorated entrances of old buildings.

 

 

where I've lived:

Verucchio is a small medieval village in Romagna, center of Italy, on the top of a hill. 

The house has a sunny barnyard with olive and apricot trees.

People here eat warm and fragrant piadina, made with lard and flour.

In the evening you hear old women doing la veglia, sitting outside their door and chatting softly.

 

I speculate on how the sun light pierces different leaves.
