Tea and coffee. About normal and abnormal

The very first time in Italy, until I learned to speak Italian fluently, I was tormented by the question: “Do you have normal or hot tea?” I could speak tè caldo – hot tea, and I pronounced it as clearly as possible when ordering.

The virgin nature of the three forest parks of Trentino

Panevegdio – Pale di San Martino, Adamello Brenta and Stelvio, the three “green lungs” of Trentino, offer a large number of ways and opportunities for exploring alpine flora and fauna. Forests, mountains, rivers, alpine fauna: nature truly reigns in Trentino, thanks also to the presence of three natural parks located in the province. The Adamello Brenta, Paneveggio – Palais di San Martino and Stelvio parks guard the natural treasures of this region, the administration of which pays special attention to respect for the environment. The area of ​​lands to be protected is almost 20% of the total area of ​​the province. In the thick forests of Trentino, half a billion trees grow, nearly 1,000 for every resident of the province: a number that far exceeds the national average. Logging in Trentino accounts for 43% of the total national volume. The high quality of local wood is due to the skillful management of logging, which is carried out according to the principle of “strategy for the Continue reading
