"I live in Sanremo, Ligura, Italy and when I walk near the sea, I am
very happy because here, we have a seaside promenade that connects the small
towns of Ospedalett, Sanremo, Arma di Taggia, Riva Ligure, Santo Stefano and
San Lorenzo. . . so we are a small piece of the necklace in the world!"
Grimaldi, Sanremo, Italy.
"If you want to know and understand NATURE,
you must compare it to mathematics. Both have the right to exist, because they
derive from absolute perfection."
- Christine Serini, Sanremo, Italy.
It's holiday time. . . the school id closed!
The snow waits for me!
Because rain, rain, rain!
I stay at home and I'm unhappy.
But. . . , I think:
The falling rain, the trees, the flowers, the meadows!
It cleans the paths,
purifies the air and. . .
I feel Spring's scent more near to me! Rain, rain,
rain. . .
The sky is gray, the sea is gray
Nature's colors are gray, but. .
I see one little pink daisy,
the broom flowers are yellow and
are red. . .
Life starts again!"
- Emanuela Bovio, Sanremo, Italy
defense of my town. Sanremo, Italy has been well known since the 1860s, due
to its wonderful climate. In the town was built The Age of Liberty's finest
architecture with nice gardens full of palms and exotic plants. Because of
the stupid laws here, it has been allowed to destroy many gardens. Only a few
of them partially survive. If I was mayor, I would propose a law to link every
garden to another one, from east to West, to build a "green corridor" of
trees and flowers."
- Nicoletta Canton, Sanremo, Italy.
is an area well-known for beach tourism, but the interior offers the possibility
to discover natural spaces that one would not imagine, so close to the sea!
Mountains allow long walks that give the possibility to discover beautiful
environments of flora and fauna. These are characteristics which form our landscape,
and are not necessarily near the sea or near the famous cities."
Giribaldi, Sanremo, Italy.
"To wake up in the morning with the possibility to see the flowers, the trees
and the sea is the best drug for every disease of the soul."
Chiara Dentone, Sanremo, Italy
