Colors are a primary part of the Italian Riviera’s identity. Wandering among the little towns and villages of Liguria you’ll notice how they perfectly mingle with the landscape and with the local tastes and scents that are traditional to Liguria.
The colors of olive grove in Imperia, vineyards in the Cinque Terre, small shops, restaurants and old fishermen houses, gardens in bloom, on and on in a succession of scenery is one of the first thing that enchants travelers visiting this region.
In the past colors were very important. In fact there’s a reason why the houses of many fishing villages, such as Camogli or Portofino, are multi-colored. Houses were each painted a different shade of color so the returning sailors could easily pick out their own.
The Italian culture, from its language to its food, from its architecture to the people, is all colored and full of verve. Any surprise that’s I’ve decided to paint some of my indoor home walls in the pastel colors of the Italian Riviera?
