My beloved Umbria
Is it the beauty of a little chapel or the Terracotta tiles of some secluded farm glittering a reddish orange in the evening sun?
Or maybe the shades greyish green of the cypresses and olive groves emerging from the morning fog? Is it the uniquely serene delete soft countryside around Lago Trasimeno with its utterly charming little towns?
It is all of those and much more, along with the kindness of the people in this region, their calm, slower pace of life, their deep love for family and spectacular food which all contribute to the quality of life here.
Wealth, power and industry have not yet taken over this particular spot of the world. We can only hope that this will continue.
