"Come varia il colore
delle stagioni,
così gli umori e i pensieri degli uomini.
Tutto nel mondo è mutevole tempo.
Ed ecco, è già pallido,
sepolcrale autunno,
quando pur ieri imperava
la rigogliosa quasi eterna estate."
(Vincenzo Cardarelli)

C’è qualcosa della natura, nei mesi più silenziosi, che ha sempre ispirato poeti, scrittori e artisti. Questa forse è la ragione che li ha portati anche sull'Isola Bella e sull'Isola Madre.

Vi viene in mente qualche nome famoso?

"As the color of
the seasons varies,
so do the moods and thoughts of men.
Everything in the world changes with time.
And behold, the already pale,
sepulchral autumn,
When yesterday the luxurious,
almost eternal summer ruled."
(Vincenzo Cardarelli)
✨
There is something about nature, in the quietest months, that has always inspired poets, writers and artists. Maybe that's the reason that brought them to Isola Bella and Isola Madre. 
🧡
Does any of those famous names come to your mind?

“Un baffo per la prevenzione” è il nome della campagna di sensibilizzazione verso i tumori maschili che per tutto il mese di novembre accompagnerà le iniziative del movimento Movember.
.
Se fosse partita nel 1600, siamo sicuri che anche Vitaliano VI Borromeo avrebbe partecipato a questa importante iniziativa per la nostra salute.

"A mustache for prevention" is the name of the campaign to raise awareness of male cancers and throughout November it will accompany the initiatives of the Movember movement.
.
If it had existed in 1600, we are sure that Vitaliano VI Borromeo would also have participated in this important initiative for our health.

Le mura della Rocca di Arona sono ciò che resta di una storia lunga più di 1000 anni.

Gestita dal Comune di Arona, è però una proprietà della famiglia Borromeo che negli ultimi anni ha finanziato i lavori che consentiranno di completare il restauro conservativo e il consolidamento strutturale della prima cinta muraria.

Un bellissimo parco da visitare nel weekend.
