Excellent idea and top-notch pictures of some less known treasures hidden throughout our country

Well done

Lovely shot of Villa Arconati, less than 15km from Milano, though quite unknown even to the Milanesi. The French gardens, on the back and the right side of the "villa", are magnificient. Sadly it has been so poorly maintained for years that it was about to collapse. A recovering plan is on the way to fix things up. Have a look at their website.

22. Valtournenche, a small town in Aosta Valley, near the Swiss border. The Matterhorn (it. Cervino, 4,478 meters) stands out in the distance.

23. Lentil fields in bloom on the Pian Grande (the Great Plain) near Castelluccio, Umbria. The name couldn't be perceived as ironical just in a region famous for its hills and wavy landscapes.

25. Rocca Calascio. Standing at 1500 meters above sea level, it is the highest fortress of Italy and allegedly the highest in Europe, with a grand view of most of Abruzzo region. It was the location for the final scene of Richard Donner's film Ladyhawke.

federicoft, may i suggest you a couple of pictures? something from Val d'Aosta, in details Val d'Ayas (if you want i can PM you with some ideas),IMHO better than Valtournanche...and also something from Piemonte, maybe Torino or the Ricetto in Candelo, that's one of the 100 best villages in Italy.

thanks for the job, if i were you i'd do a website about it, call it "italia.it"!
