Hi Folks, my web page start here. Just under my photo made on a heavy job day. I live in Cosenza a city of Calabria, a land kissed by the sun and embraced by the sea. In south of Italy, where the boot "Lo Stivale" is staying in front of Sicily. I'm happy because God was generous with us when He made the Calabria. The sea is far only 30 Km (19 miles) from the city and the mytic mountains of Sila tableland, of Sila reaching up to 2000 mt are at 31 Km (20 Miles) far from the city too. Watersea in summer, whitesnow in winter (and mushrooms in june-september).In the middle just the work.
