Tips from locals
a gorgeous little town just outside Sanremo, for a really nice day or half day out. The little village was distroyed during the war and was then occupied by a group of artists. It has then become the village of the artists ever since and you can now find many really nice shops selling artistic…
The town abandoned after the earthquake in the late 19th century and gained back by artists from all over the world.
Bussana Vecchia is a former ghost town in Liguria. Abandoned due to an earthquake in 1887, it was renovated and repopulated by an international community of artists in the early 1960s by ceramist Clizia, painter Vanni Giuffrè and poet Giovanni Fronte.
