Feel Free | Ferrara | Italy
We created a metaphoric story about being free. Being free to live your dreams, freedom of mind, free to do what you love to do. The story is told with impressions and emotions we lived on a journey through the beautiful Province of Ferrara, Italy. These lands stretch from behind the equally named city of Ferrara to the coast covering the delta of the Po river. We started our trip in city of Ferrara, UNESCO world heritage and is the ruling bike city of Italy. Thats why we also moved around on two wheels, like the locals do. Paddling we discovered a beautiful centre that breaths a majestic ambience of its roots from Renaissance; impressive buildings, castles and cathedrals, wide squares surrounded by arced walkways and a city defense wall that encircles the historic centre. Numerous biking itineraries cross cute villages and nature reserves rich of water and full of life.
.. Ferrara, a place to feel free

7 Living Postcards | Valsugana | Italy
We created a series of 7 living postcards from Valsugana to tell the story how we lived and loved the place. Valsugana is definitely one of the most lush green valleys I’ve ever seen. An oasis, secluded from the rest of the world where you undoubtly will have some good time off.
You’ll find numerous little villages (borghi) scattered around lower slopes of the valley giving home to an avid kind people living in harmony with their environment. Adapted to the conditions of the mountains the people produce lots of genuine organic products, from honey to chees, often. in their mountain farm, a so called “Malga”. At some of the Malga you can dine and wine deliciously tasting all kinds of local genuine products. The area is very rich of fresh water. Zillions of creeks of cristal clear mountain water run down the hills culmintating in a big fresh stream of icewater called the Brenta river. It cuts through the valley and can be followed by bike all along the way, towards the next valley. When you get overheated along your cycle trip you simply plunge in a pool or stream. Many kilometres of treks allow limitless strolls through unspoiled pine forest and breathtaking moutains scapes. You will have undoubtly encounters with heaps of cows and you may also meet wild horses or large birds of prey. This could be the backyard of the Gods.
In april and may every monday we will post a new card! Be sure to come back and collect them!

Big Elements Little Heroes | Trentino | Italy
I got into the skin of the regions most little adventure seekers and followed their steps. I got deeply impressed by the courage they demonstrated. Youngsters of even 6 years that overcome their fears in their confrontation with the elements; conquering steep cliffs, zip lining over the dazzling deeps, catching the wind in their sails. These little heroes of the elements are destined to be big people. I’m grateful having lived some magical moments through their eyes, I’m happy having had a glimpse of their joyful lives in beautiful Trentino; I’m honored to tell their story.
Set back! here’s Big elemenent, Little heroes!
Trentino, a courageous kids paradise.

Along Shores of Time | Nile River | Egypt
Along Shores of Time, tells a journey along the Nile. The majestic sail boat “Feddya” takes us on a soothing cruise through impressive ancient history, all along the shores of a river that gives life to nowadays Egyptians. A voyage of plenty, joy and excitement. This has been the traditional way of travel since the Pharaohs and now those days have been revived with modern comfort, five star service and luxurious accommodation. The Mövenpick SB Feddya
is a boutique sailboat sailing the river Nile between Luxor and Aswan, offering fantastic shore excursions to explore the ancient Egyptian wonders. With only four suites onboard the Feddya, it is the closest experience to having your own private yacht – an exclusive and new concept for cruising the river Nile.

Red Drops of Life | Basilicata | Italy
This is my latest creation for the Digital Diary
of Basilicata, Italy. My piece is under competition. So, if you like it, great if you’d share it and so helping me getting the award!
With “Red drops of life” I wanted to visualize the story behind a divine wine in a poetic way. In fact it’s not a person that tells the story, but it’s the wine that tells its story through the senses. One glass of wine is containing not only a finely elaborated extract of riped grapes fed with a unique set of elements of found in these lands: sun, water and volcanic minerals; but it contains stories… stories of the people dedicating their lives to nurture it, following their traditions, knowledge and above all, their passion.
Aglianico wine.. a story in a bottle, that needs to be told.
Haven of Delight
Navigating along the Ionian coast you’ll find a precious emerald; Porto degli Argonati
right at the sole of the Italian peninsula. A Haven of Delight you sail in, dock and set foot on the beautiful Lucanian Territory (Basilicata). As a team of StoryTravelers we were invited to open our senses and live the perfect day. We visualized our intense experience, making a series of Pictures
and a Video.
The Wonderful Taste of Life
I toasted at the bottom of a cave where organic cheeses mature at a depth of 73 meters. I strolled along Trieste’s pier following the story of a granny battling the wind in order catch a cool summer breeze. We landed on a terrace for an appetizer and found ourselves being careful not to let Spritz, a drink made of Prosecco and Aperol, leave us under the table. In untouched grassy wetlands we were met by wild white horses that created an imposing mirage as they galloped towards us. We descended through hidden canyons where turquoise water streams drifted us to undiscovered shores.. and those are just the fresh memories.
