Stresa. It’s not fair they get this all to themselves.

May 4, 2015

What did God do? Did He say, “That place over there which looks  like paradise, give it to the Italians on Lake Maggiore and they can call it Stresa. And while I’m at it, why not throw in Lake Como and also the Bellagio Peninsula?”

It’s not fair that they get this just for themselves. What sheer beauty and spectacular scenery and perfect proportions.

It must be the quinessential place for the Italian passegiata: get the family together (and don’t forget nonna), get dressed up, and then walk at an even, leisurely pace along the foreshore path of that heavenly lake. Breathe in the beauty of it all, nod to fellow passegiatarers, and perhaps stop to chat with them every now and then.
