News Bites: Little Bits Of News From Stresa


Just enough news to enjoy with your cappuccino ... 

Time for another cappuccino news break; this time let's talk about culture: cinema, music, and tourism.

An interesting award given to Stresa and Verbania, and in reality all the region of Piemonte, from the online hotel comparison website Trivago. Piemonte took first place, based on users' ratings, in online reputation of regions in Italy, that is, the quality and ease-of-use of online resources and planning. Within Piemonte, Stresa took second place prize, behind Alba, and Verbania came in fourth place, after Torino. The award was given recently in Milano, during the International Tourism Exchange. Nice to know that Stresa is so highly regarded online according to tourists.  In my opinion, a reputation well-deserved.

Stresa may be the setting for at least part of another film soon. French director Eugene Green plans to film most of his next movie in Italy, perhaps partly in Stresa, where he also did casting auditions last week at the Distretto Turistico dei Laghi office. The working title of the film is 'La Sapienza.' Green described it in a recent interview, "It takes place today, but the central character is an architect who is obsessed by the great baroque architect Francesco Borromini, who will be present through his architecture and references to his life."
