Walk For Solidarity To Autism And Delicious Spaghetti

What a perfect combination! On the 2th of April this year in Mondolfo, region Marche, there was organised “Spaghettata” a big town party where the spaghetti were prepared following the traditional recipe which is kept under the secret :))

Fantastic work was done and administration colaborated with the Omphalos,organising solidarity sport events. Everyone who wanted to take a part in these events could buy the tickets and money from the sold tickets went to help autistic children! I was impressed by the quantity of people who participated in this big idea. There were people of all ages,from diffrent backgrounds enjoying this fantastic day! I would like to say big thank to  mayor Nicola Barbieri, Omphalos, Avis and technical sponsor Caraffa Sport for the huge work and organisation.

If You Are Thirsty!!!

 

How says the owner of this beer place, ‘good places should be discovered’! And he is damn right!!! It’s the most fun and “take it easy” place to discover.

If you are a great fan of good beer then pack your stuff and go to Italy to the small town called Gubbio and find the pub Don Navarro!! In Don Navarro you can experience fantastic local, worldwide famous beers and “taste of difference” beers. It’s a small pub with a lot to offer! I enjoyed the place, talked with super friendly owner and of course the beer. If I remember right, they have more then 18 beer variations!
