Barzio - My Mother Native Place

Barzio is a comune in the Province of Lecco in the Italian region Lombardy, located in the Valsassina about 60 kilometers northeast of Milan and about 12 kilometers northeast of Lecco.

Painting by: Teresa Dominici, Title: The village of Barzio, year: 2013, acrylic on canvas, commission.

Barzio lies in privileged position, dipped in the green and in front of the Grigne. Currently the town is considered the touristic center of the Valsassina and offers different opportunities to the sporting people. From there starts a cable-way, that leads to the Piani di Bobbio (2150 m) and the Valtorta an area that in the winter season is a paradise for snow lovers with its always snow-clad trails, while in the summer it’s the ideal destination for a relaxing day surrounded by nature.

Right at the foot of the cable car Artavaggio, you will find Bar-Ristoro Capriolo, Via Rancilio 29, Moggio, tel: +39 342 008 3280. This place is magnificent, thus the 5 star rating. From the time you enter until you leave, you get a true mountain ambiance, very family oriented, homemade food.

The beauty and the wildness", il primo video di #leccomountains, è dedicato alla bellezza, che nel territorio montuoso di Lecco si genera dal forte contrasto fra lago e montagna, con valloni impervi che d'inverno assumono vesti ora gentili negli altopiani, ora severi, come in Grigna, Grignone, Fasana e Val Biandino. Bastano poche decine di minuti per trovarsi in una wildness che circonda Lecco con paesaggi che suscitano stupore e meraviglia.

In quanti luoghi un centro cittadino è così immediatamente a contatto con la montagna?

Port of Marina Grande

Sorrento is a town and Comune in Campania.

This is Sorrento’s largest harbor and has long been home to a fishing fleet of traditional wooden boats. 

Painting by: Teresa Dominici, Acrylic on canvas, 25"x25", (63x63 cm), Year: 2014, Title:  Port of the Marina Grande in Sorrento

Marina Grande is a small traditional fishing port that sits underneath the limestone cliffs on which the old town of Sorrento is perched.

Port of the Marina Grande fishing was the main source of living of the people in this town. Today, fishermen can still be found in Marina Grande sitting and mending fish nets with their bare hands.

Despite its name, Marina Grande (large marina) is actually the smaller of Sorrento’s two main harbors. It is also the older marina.
