The Story to Live Together

The Tigullio section of Italia Nostra has commissioned Antonella and her environmental friends to produce material for a documentary about the culture of the hills of Lavagna so as to promote the eco-sustainability of this area.

Would you like to be part of the group that will highlight the eco-sustainable qualities of Tigullio?
Come and interview the locals using both your curiosity and smartphone and capture a landscape dating back to over a thousand years ago.

Antonella, Experiential Tourism Operator

Hello! I am Antonella, a tourist guide born and raised in Lavagna, a charming sea side town in the middle of the Tigullio Gulf.
Together we will discover its coastal hills, once the centre of slate extraction (the black stone of Liguria). Amongst the dry-stone walled terraces and ancient olive trees we can experience an emotional journey between the past and the present, understanding the importance of caring for the territory we live in.
