Sunday, October 22 is the National Day of Literary Parks, and events and activities are also planned at the Eugenio Montale Literary Park in Monterosso.
Literary Parks are a way to live and revive the authors of Italian literature in the natural environments that inspired works, in places that tell stories and suggestions. There are literary parks all over Italy, and perhaps not all the locals know that in the Cinque Terre is hosted since 2009 the Literary Park dedicated to Eugenio Montale.
Monterosso was the summer residence of the Genoese Montale since its youth, and was important in the formation of intimate vision inspired by typical Mediterranean nature images, lived in its essence and naturalness and interpreted with that profound linguistic research that distinguished his work.
In the “backs of heights and sky” that inspired many verses of the poet, the path of knowledge of the park is overwhelmed by the inspiration of his inspiration and allows the true Cinque Terre to be revisited with his words. Food is also part of this path: the colors of honey, lemons, anchovies and sciacchetrà, of which Montale said “the classic type, drunk on the spot, authentic, one hundred percent, far surpasses that pharmaceutical wine of Porto “are at the center of the experience.
On Sunday 22, there are three thematic events in the park consisting of excursions, tastings and shows to celebrate Montale and the Cinque Terre.
