Travels after the Covid-19 emergency: discovering Italy with historic homes

After the Covid-19 emergency we will have a great desire to restart and rediscover the pleasure of traveling, of being outdoors and in the midst of nature. Living still in our homes for months is making us reflect on many aspects related to the lifestyles we had before the fateful lockdown. We are finally understanding how important nature is, being able to take a walk and rejoice in front of the multitude of beauties that our country offers us.

The time has come for open your eyes to the testimonies of the past that until now we have not fully appreciated. Ancient houses, castles, towers, lighthouses, archaeological areas, villages, museums, are places that have much to tell and that are waiting to be visited.

We look out of the windows of our balconies and hear the clean air, the noises have decreased, the car traffic has disappeared, the phones ring less.  We are rediscovering slow styles and rhythms of life, marked by the passage of time and which leads us to give greater attention and value to the many small things that life gives us every day.

We need to turn this emergency into an opportunity to review how it is where to seek happiness and our well-being.
