I want to start off my first post giving you a peek of my city, Bergamo.
Bergamo is a small town in the north of Italy. The town is divided into two parts. The first is the upper town known as Città Alta which is a very rich heritage part of art and history. The second is the lower town called Citta Bassa where you can enjoy the modern atmosphere of the downtown.
If you like green&moutains, you’re in the right place.
One of my favourite spots in the city is The Astino Monastery. It evokes an idea of stillness and peace, it is a place of meditation and silence where time seems to have stopped. Nowadays the monastery is opened back to the public, after being almost full restructured. It hosts numerous events, exhibitions and initiatives related to food, wine, art&music and nutrition in general, with the participation of many people.
There will be other posts about Bergamo in the future so I hope you liked it.
