We are shaped and fashioned
by what we love
I like being on holiday, but I would never switch my brain off: life is too short to let it slip by, to not bite its every moment off. That’s why I come to Borgo Egnazia: because it is not a “destination” but a “doing”, “living” place.
Borgo Egnazia is like a breathing tale of Puglia, spoken by the ancient culture of the land and by the sheer beauty of its nonpareil architecture. It happens every time I come and live my time here, may it be winter or summer: nature is powerful, peace is intense, harmony is full. And man has done good things here too: the exquisite Apulian food, the beauty of the villages around, the warmth of the people’s welcomings. This is a place of stone and sky, of sea and history, of words and silences. Only when I come here I finally meet my inner self. Here I have a chance to pursue my ongoing quest for watching, listening, feeling and storing beautiful things.
