A fall escape in rural Emilia. I like wandering and exploring the places next to my doorstep. There are hidden beauties in the Emilia countryside. These days I have thought about the extraordinary classical lyrics that somehow are connected to Autumn. What about going into the countryside and listen the magnificent ode to Autumn of the Italian composer Antonio Vivaldi?
What has this topic in common with Emilia? Apparently nothing. But, if we go behind the first layer, we can realize that there is something special about Autumn in the Emilia countryside and the melody of Antonio Vivaldi well-expressed the magic atmosphere.
Let your imagination be captured by the colors of the landscape rich in vineyards of Lambrusco Grasparossa. These are the hills around Castelvetro di Modena and Levizzano Rangone. These places will impress you for their beauty. It’s hard to find a palette of colors like you can find here. You can pass many hours walking in these hills and valleys, learning to find comfort and company in nature.
Grapes have been already harvested at this time of the year. Autumn is a good season in rural Emilia. Driving through the quiet historical villages feels like experiencing a land that time forgot.
A fall elegant escape for exquisite weekends away into the Appennino Tosco-Emiliano can be a trove of treasures. Fall is a very special moment in the year when leaves have fallen and you can see the structures of the trees in all their fierce.
The beauty and perfection of life is left open to be witnessed. This melancholy season this changing landscape what beauty it reveals in an ode to the Autumn.
To see a World in a Grain of Sand And a Heaven in a Wild Flower Hold Infinity in the palm of your hand And Eternity in an hour
