About Me
My background: PhD cultural anthropology and medieval S. Fr N. Italy culture (literature, history of art) Live in France and Italy full time since 1980s; dual national My interest in medieval architecture and art requires sojourns into mountain valleys where the techniques and styles from Florence arrived later than the burgeonning Giottoesque new styles in Tuscany and the Veneto. The rich local cultures (many mountains, many valleys) are marked in part by the popular cults that drove patrons to find local artists to decorate chapels in the spirit of the times. My home provides you with easy access to nearby 19th-20th-etc art and architecture sites/museums, some ancient and medieval monuments and sites (e.g., Roman road and city). Autoroute provides even faster access to points east in Italy (Florence, 4 hurs; Venice, 5) and west in the Var and Provence; Renaissance painted chapels (etc) and great mountain hiking aplenty in nearby Alps. House situated near A8, sncf, great value local bus services; France's 2nd biggest airport nearby. We frequently go to Italy (Liguria and Piedmont within reach but Venice only a 45 minute flight) for typical yet unique food markets (in Ventimiglia but also in smaller seaside and mountain villages), coffees, proseccos, restaurants, beaches, shopping! Charming sea views and nearby beaches to chose out the front door. Drive north and you can be at 2,000 metres above sea level for wildflowers, lakes, and destinations such as the Mercantour park.
