    Italy is a land forever associated with beauty: in music, in art and in nature. Down the centuries these stories were brought home by travellers, soldiers and merchants, returning crusaders, gypsies and pilgrims. Much loved and often repeated they grew in the telling to become wholly Italian in their nature - which is as much to say that today they are very beautiful indeed.

    Wondrous dragons live in jewelled palaces under the ground and stars and animals speak. Emperors live out their exquisite lives surrounded by the most refined art and luxury. Yet all these stories are rooted in a love of ordinary things and timeless regard for honesty and simplicity. Virtue is more prized than riches and there is more delight in the song of a bird than in all the craft that man could ever devise.
