News Bites -- Little Bits Of News From Stresa


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


If a recently begun experiment bears fruit then olive oil may soon be produced along the banks of Lago Maggiore. Agricultural experts from Facolta' di Agraria dell'Universita' di Torino, il Consorzio per la Tutela dell'olio extravergine d'oliva Piemonte e Valle d'Aosta e l'associazione Piemontese Olivicoltori (Asspo) are collaborating with local institutions to try to cultivate olive farms around the lake, in an effort to both bring another source of business to the area and also to produce another food from a region already known for its gastronomic excellence.

The tourist season of 2009 officially ends on October 25. On this date many of the touristic destinations will close completely until the new season begins in late March 2010. Other locations will switch to limited hours and days of opening. Therefore, please check the hours and open dates of all places before you make plans for these next months. In Stresa itself, most restaurants will retain their normal hours and days of operation, but again, do check, as some may take an extended holiday during the winter, or switch to shorter hours.

And even though this summer is just over it's certainly not too soon to plan for the next. Stresa is doing that, with the unveiling of designs for a new public swimming pool near the Carciano imbarcadero and the base of the Mottarone Cableway. With computer-generated images it's easy to see that the pool, if completed, is going to be a showpiece. Set back from the Lido beach and raised higher on a plateau of land, the pool will have a view of several of Stresa's attractions such as the Borromeo Islands and the cableway, and undoubtedly it will become an attraction in its own right. Will it happen? Stay tuned...

This computer-generated image shows how the new pool is expected to look.

Grazie, come sempre, a Stresa2.0 per la news.
