“Cattolica, the wealth of the simplicity”
Genuineness, essentiality, flavours of the past, are qualities, that the visitor feels right away and by which he is immediately conquered, no sooner he arrives at Cattolica and at the whole Romagna. So, it occurs to me too, every time I happen to be passing along nearby, I feel myself at home. And I find this again in the intense images of Antonio Barbieri, who, with sensibility, love for his land, curiosity and passion, returns atmospheres and landscapes, but also, and above all, he returns actions and sensations, belonging to the ones, that reside here, or live the city just on their holiday. The culture of the hospitality has so taken root in these parts, that it enters the way of the ones, giving us hospitality, with love and liking, as if we were a part of the family and it makes a journey in these zones unique and unforgettable. And it’s this spontaneity, so ripened in time, as to become almost innate, which has determined the success of the Adriatic Riviera, in the national, tourist. bathing system. And every-body, who is going to make of the tourism his profession, to experience and, if it’s possible, to get to learn… the wealth of the simplicity, should be passing along here nearby.
