388. Sweden, an ancient and modern land…

Roberto Cavalli388. Sweden, an ancient and modern land…

I decided to deepen my knowledge of this ancient country and learn a little more Swedish…

The origins of the Swedish people go back to the Stone Age and beyond. Their relationship with nature comes from a well-established friendship over the centuries.

I really like the respect the Swedes have for nature. Here they created the first European national park way back in 1909. Nature is grateful and repays them with rich vegetation and a rich and abundant Sea.

The climate is pleasant thanks to the warming influences of the Gulf Stream. Although Sweden is very close to the Arctic Circle, the average temperatures are well above what you would expect at this latitude.

At this time of year the days here are long… eighteen hours of daylight with the sun rising at 3:30am and setting at 10:30pm…The light here is different from that you find in the Mediterranean and so you are introduced to a different palette of colours.

What I admire about Sweden is its economic liberalism… the quest for justice… socialism… democracy… environmental consciousness… social equality and their neutrality in international disputes…

Here I fell in love with one of its many fantastic islands… a piece of heaven… the perfect place for a relaxing time…

I rediscovered the pleasure of fishing… surrounded by beautiful nature… almost surreal silence broken only by the rustling of leaves caressed by the breeze or the sounds of a mysterious animal, out of sight, that communicates with his fellows…

Fishing has the power to stop the course of time… the seconds become minutes and minute hours… how many thoughts go through my mind… how many ideas… inspiration grows inside me…

I wish to have you all here… near me… everyone gathered in its own thoughts… all together… a meditative moment…

I LOVE YOU
