The Magic of Italy
Wendy Noton looking forward and backward before rediscovering the profusion of colour to be found in Umbria this time of year.
The Valnerina Valley in Umbria’s Green Heart of Italy is a place where we ran workshops for 7 years, a place where we met new friends and a place where we still enjoy returning to. In fact, we’re heading there soon to drive past mist draped olive groves and cypress trees, ignoring the over-hyped and touristy Assisi, of course. As we get nearer the dual carriageway becomes a minor road and the pace of life slows; peace prevails. We hear nightingale birdsong through the trees, the land embraces us. We see shepherds tending their flocks, knowing in the woods beyond will be the inevitable wild boar. This is Umbria, and believe me, it’s the Magic of Italy!
