sheds light on the ancient region that Italians know as their most fertile kitchen garden, the source of much of their history, a treasured holiday spot for generations of savvy Milanese and a great place to party!
Says the English publisher Valere Tjolle: “In Romagna – just a short distance from Venice or Florence – you will taste something powerfully, gloriously, refreshingly natural.”
“The region really comes to life in the autumn and winter when massive food and wine festivals lead up to a whole month of sensational Christmas celebrations”
In Romagna, in autumn and winter, for time immemorial, the hill and mountain villages, the towns of the plains and valleys, the colourful ports and the glorious cities of art – all become alive with festivities.
And they have a lot to celebrate – shielded from invaders by the Apennine Mountains on the one side, and the Adriatic Sea on the other, for millennia fertile Romagna has been a treasure chest of fabulous food and drink. This led to the great power and riches of its cities and caused warring barons to protect them with hundreds of soaring medieval hilltop castle communities.
The Medicis and the Borgias, the Malatestas, the Sforzas and the Montefeltros, the Romans, the Popes the Byzantines, the Goths and the Venetians – all came, went and left historic castles, basilicas, ports and other great edifices creating an atmospheric fairytale paradise for visitors today and, of course, amazing backdrops for parties!
The vineyard-clad castellated hills, the great art, the sublime food and drink, but above all the remarkable Romagnolo hospitality then really open visitor’s eyes, and hearts to this unique place.
In more recent times, Romagna’s 1960’s ‘Dolce Vita’ seaside destinations like Fellini’s Rimini, Riccione, Cattolica and Cesenatico still have enormous retro charm and attest to the Romagnolo’s ability to throw superb parties.
And, Romagna is a really natural and authentic place to visit. You’ll not find chain hotels or eateries, the food you eat and the wine or beer you drink will usually be local and seasonal – and delicious. The people you meet will be naturally hospitable and informed – they’ll be proud to advise you where and what to eat and drink and where and what to see.”
“More importantly, in Romagna, you will not be just another tourist. You will be a welcome guest and the right sort of guest with the right sort of attitude can change things for the better for all these the local economies – dramatically.”
You may think that this kind of experience would be expensive. Happily it is not – just compare prices and you will see that Romagna represents not only real experience, but real value too.
Just the place for a wonderful pre-Christmas visit to get you in the mood for a great celebration!
