Santo Stefano Belbo Travel Guide: 2 reviews and 3 photos

.....la fatica di vivere....

In Santo Stefano Belbo was born one of the most famous italian writer , Cesare Pavese.
My favourite books written by him are "Il mestiere di vivere" and "La casa in collina".Currently i am reading "La luna e i falò"

He loved to say " We do not remember days, we remember moments "






Cesare Pavese - Nocturne
The hill is like night against the clear sky.
Your head framed against it, barely moving,
and moving with the sky. You are like a cloud
seen between branches. In your eyes the laughter
and strangeness of a sky that is not yours.
The hill of earth and leaves halts
your bright gaze with its dark mass,
your mouth has the curve of a gentle hollow
between distant slopes. You seem to play
with the great hill and the clearness of the sky:
to please me you echo the ancient background
and make it purer.
But you live elsewhere.
Your gentle blood came from elsewhere.
The words you say have no meeting-point
with the rugged sadness of this sky.
You are only a white and sweetly gentle cloud
entangled one night among ancient branches.
