“The Beauty of Tiny Italy” arrives in Venice

The preservation of small villages. They are a unique theatre of widespread beauty with largely untapped tourism potential. The identity and pride of Italian craft tradition. The wealth of knowledge of Italian companies specializing in restoring great monumental works. The hidden jewels of fabulous villas and noble residences. “The Beauty of Tiny Italy,” a short film produced by The Skill Group, was presented today at the pavilion of the Veneto region as part of the Venice Film Festival. The work – curated by Lorenzo Munegato and Alberto Pezzella with the contribution of Simone Massaccesi – is a journey through Italy of small and medium-sized towns. It is a reality that is increasingly attractive for tourism, smart working and corporate seminars. The journey starts in Sarzana, the first town of Liguria when travelling from Tuscany, with its surprising old centre and majestic fortresses. It then moves on to Magliano in Tuscany in the heart of Maremma, a town with unmistakable medieval features set on the top of a hill planted with olive trees and vineyards with a spectacular view of Mount Argentario. And then Conversano, a distillate of history and natural beauty in the southern Murge, where there is a castle built by the Normans, now a splendid museum housing the works of Ligabue. The journey into the beauty of tiny Italy continues in Norcia, at the Basilica of St. Benedict, destroyed in the 2016 earthquake. It is a symbolic place of rebirth where Cobar, an Italian excellence in the restoration of monumental goods, has completed the recovery of the Basilica’s facade and aims to return it to the population by 2025. Finally, there is Tenuta Tolomei in Torreglia: a breathtaking view of the Euganean Hills and an architectural jewel where taste, fine wine and art meet in a perfect union. It is a powerful snapshot of an Italy that wants to be a protagonist again and regain the right to be told.
