Voices of Menaggio - Part 4
There is a saying that home is where the heart is and my heart is right here in Menaggio, especially while I'm staying in an apartment with an incredible view of Lake Como. The owners of the apartment, Silvia & Gianluca, are the most gracious hosts providing all that is needed to live comfortably. The apartment I rented, Appartamento Emilia, is on the third floor on the lakefront of Menaggio and adjacent to a historic building that used to be the Albergo Principe and is now also a rental called Charming Prince Apartment.
Following the Italian family tradition, Silvia's late parents used to live in the Appartamento Emilia which carries her mother's name and has that home feeling with a spectacular view that I will miss once I leave on Friday. Although very busy running the store where I buy the newspaper every day, La Provincia, Silvia & Gianluca have a very warm and friendly disposition and offer wonderful hospitality with a perfect location, right in the center of Menaggio.
I am truly grateful to my friend, Bruno Tettamanti (Galleria Tettamanti), who introduced me to Gianluca last year when I was looking for an apartment as I was invited once again by Tablinum Cultural Management to showcase my artwork in Lake Como. Moreover, Elisa & Alessandro (TCM) invited me to participate in a group exhibition to take place in Bellagio in September of next year. Consequently, I'm very much looking forward to returning to my beloved Lake Como.
