News Bites -- Little Bits Of News From Stresa

Just enough news to digest with a cup of cappuccino...

There are big plans for Stresa's lakefront. According to Stresa's Mayor, Canio Di Milia, plans are falling into place for the construction of a pool, to be located at the Carciano imbarcadero. Other plans call for the extension of the lungolago path to the Villa Aminta Hotel, increased parking at the zoo, and the renovation of the minigolf park, including a new beach area.

The Regina Palace Hotel has announced a summer schedule of free concerts, several times each week, in the Nuova Sala Tiffany. Check the events schedule on the right column of this blog for the exact dates and times.

The Thursday farmers market is open again in Verbania, after having been closed for the winter. Slightly different from the other weekly town markets, this market offers local produce to consumers, grown at nearby farms and sold fresh only in its season. This also eliminates the middle man, thus providing shoppers with freshness, low prices, and the satisfaction of helping local producers. Open every Thursday from 8.00 to 13.30, in the parking lot of Via Motta Fiume.


Stresa will again participate in the national competition called "Comune Fioriti," in which homeowners, shopkeepers, and the city itself register their properties and pledge to decorate with flowers their balconies, terraces, gardens, businesses, even just flowerpots in doorways, all with the motive of offering to all a more beautiful city.

A wonderful article about Stresa's own Marco Aghemio, in Yacht Digest magazine. The magazine featured Marco and the work he does in the cantiere he founded seven years ago. Marco specializes in the restoration and maintenance of wooden motor boats, most specially the Riva Ariston line. Think 1950s, think George Clooney, think polished wood and turquoise seats, and you've got the idea. If this is your kind of boat you can contact Marco at: Cantiere Aghemio Marco, via per Binda 6, 28838 Stresa (VB), tel. 347 9202648, fax+39/02-7004411077 Internet:www.cantiereaghemio.com e-mail: marcoaghemio@gmail.com.
