'Those who dream by day choose their own dreams, unlike those who dream only by night and be content.'
By following these simple words of Edgar Allan Poe, me and my wife, Lisa, we approached the renovation of the house that we were enamored, and he was slowly falling apart.
And 'how we started our adventure.
We approached timidly to the restructuring, with respect, as you would with an old single lady from the glorious past. And as the work were we met, clashed, sent to hell, ..... up to fall in love. It 'was an inevitable process, as if it were dropped that invisible veil that separated us, and we gave ourselves to each other.
Many years have passed since that day, but we were able to remove the layer of dust that hung over the thick stone walls, and so were born House Heaven, Earth House, Stone House and the smaller Casa Il Nido.
Full of satisfaction Lisa and I looked at each other, and after giving a last look at the house, we turned, and our eyes rested shapeless sull'ammasso of small flat and weeds that surrounded the house: our garden.
We tacitly accepted with yet another challenge, and with enthusiasm and determination we started to 'tame' the garden.
Today it is all settled and we are happy to offer our guests a nice 'Mediterranean garden'
