Recently, I have been listening to a BBC series on d'Annunzio. I wonder why it is that the early 20th Century was so full of marvelous characters like him, but who seem completely absent from our modern world. Many of them would of course be in jail today.
True. Modern society is all about mediocrity. They may talk about diversity, but they want none of it.
A fantastic place, well worth visiting. I was there two years ago.
