Molise is the region where I was born and where I lived for 30 years. I am still tied to my country, my whole family lives there and my cultural roots sink in that land.
It’s a poor region economically and culturally, but I love the simplicity of the land and the people. I felt the need to leave because the economic growth did not correspond to a cultural growth. Now when I come back to Molise, I look for the simple things in the landscape, food, and people. So I feed my roots. I recommend everyone to go visit Molise. Small things in tight spaces makes the place very suggestive.
