We have our feet well planted on the ground, and our eyes get lost in the beauty of this land, where the Ristorante da Giovannino is located, “that branch of the Como lake that looks to the East”, authentic, still strong against the invasion of mass tourism that characterizes our age. We are the deep lake, blue and green, that makes its way between the high mountains like a fjord, and then turns into a river and then a lake once more. We are the valleys where hard working and generous people lie, we have the spirit of the mountains and the spirit of Brianza, with its gentle slopes speckled by streams and smaller lakes. We are the literature on the pages of Alessandro Manzoni, we are the monuments that rise up to the beautiful abbey of San Pietro al Monte, the mills that echo the history of the past centuries, we are the “tirabagia”, the best producers of wire in the world, we are this land and these peoples. Places and stories worthy of being known.
