The Abbey of San Galgano

by Sharene Hanlon

With the day having beautiful blue skies, we set out to find the Abbey of San Galgano. After stopping in a few towns and then stopping by a local Italian bar and receiving the correct location, we found it! In 1789, lightening struck the bell tower which collapsed onto the roof of the Abbey and the church was deconsecrated. What a stunning structure even without a roof.

Belaggio, Lake Como

by Steven Madonna

I am very happy to be a subscriber to Italia! magazine – it is a truly special way to relive my trips to Italy. This is a photo I took in Belaggio in 2004. I sincerely believe it captures the beauty and Dolomite setting of this special place. I would be proud to share this photo with your readers.
