There is somehow something Special about this mediterranean Countries  that are rooted in this ancient and antik high cultures like Rome and the old Greeks and especially in Italy its the sense for Art and Beauty transmitted through the Centuries.  

Italy is just Beautiful and so is Torretta, this wild Place which is managed by Dieter (83!) so lovely is also unique and a special Place. There is a small but growing Sangha around and I spent two Nights and had lots of interesting talks with Dieter and his Sangha Neighbours.
