Italian landscape plays on the traveler a charm comparable to our food, climate and our way of life.

The variety of our country's natural environment (with its seas and islands, mountains, lakes and countryside) can not be distinguished from the cities that have been built over the centuries.

The beauty of the villages and art cities is also due to the place where they were built. For example, think of what Naples would be without its gulf and Vesuvius in the background. Moreover, a monument can’t be valued at its best without considering the landscape around, especially in a culturally rich nation like Italy.

For "landscape", therefore, we mean not only the purely natural elements, but also the artificial ones, which are the result of the unmistakable overlap of human actions. In the Italian landscape, nature, history and art blend in to create a complex and harmonious order.

Traveling in Italy is like traveling through history: from Greek temples in Sicily to the nineteenth-century residences of Piedmont, passing through Roman arenas and medieval fortresses. This heritage is protected by the Italian Constitution, in which the Republic commits itself to preserve the nation's landscape.

Every nation is based on its own history and art: it is certainly not the Leonardo da Vinci’s Gioconda or the Colosseum in Rome to make us Italians, but without them our definition of “nation” would not be complete: art masterpieces enclose the essence of a historical moment, and thanks to them we can preserve its memory.

The value of Italian cultural and artistic wealth is not appreciated in figures, but on the unparalleled nobility of a people born and raised in art.
