The rural heritage of Italy

In Italy, a country of Story, should be preserved a history too often disqualified as ‘minor’- such as dotted villages among the Abruzzi mountains and historical heritage so far from the canons of classicism. This ‘minor patrimony’ is considered as what remains of an increasingly endangered but very authentic Italy
