See you soon Giovanna!

Sorry for delay but I’ve been quite busy during last days. Giovanna left Sant’Arsenio yesterday evening for a one week holiday in Sicilia with Josephine’s family. I’m sad for the shortness of their holiday in Sant’Arsenio and I look forward to being able to see them again. They’ve invited me to go in Sicilia but I don’t know if I’ll be able to go there in next days. Anyway I will go in St Louis, where they live in USA, as soon as possible.

I can’t say that I shown Giovanna around Sant’Arsenio… in fact she knows it much better then me. Anyway we’ve shown Josephine around Vallo di Diano and we visited some local ‘attractions’. The most important has surely been ‘Certosa di Padula’, which I’m going to shortly talk about. I’m sorry but I don’t have any photo at the moment because we’ve taken them just using Giovanna and Josephine’s cameras. I think they’ll send me photos as soon as they'll come back in Missouri. If I’m still ‘student blogger’ I’ll show them in a post…

‘Certosa di Padula’ is an important Italian monastery located in Padula, a small village close to Sant’Arsenio. Recently ‘Certosa’ has been recognised as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO and every summer becomes interesting artistic events’ location. I know ‘Certosa’ very well because I used to go to High School in Padula and so I was able to visit it frequently. It’s a fantastic place which should be visited during a holiday in the South of Italy. The photo on the right is borrowed from the ‘Town of Padula’ official site. I’m sorry but I haven’t found any pages in English about Certosa to link in this post.

See you tomorrow

Good night



Thanx for the info about Certosa di Paula Antonio. Actually, Italy has plenty of beautiful places and I'd like to visit them someday. I have a sort of connection with Italy (I'm learning Italian, my favorite singer is Tiziano Ferro) and I seem to have fallen in love with everything related to Italy.I'm looking forward to visiting that amazing country! - Baci, Liz

Has Padula sth to do with the Saint (we know him in Spain as Antonio de Paula)? The picture shows a fantastic location. Sure it deserves to be a world heritage.

Thanks for all your contributions. This blog has now closed and can no longer accept new comments.
