The best luxury hotel 2017 is Palazzo Seneca in Norcia

Palazzo Seneca is a hotel in Norcia, a land heavily hit by the recent earthquake. It is the most important place run by Bianconi family, since many generations, along with their other tourist structures. Virtuoso Travel, one of the most World famous luxury tourist professionals network, has awarded it as the best luxury hotel in the World in Las vegas. The strong earthquake-proof structure has allowed the hotel to reopen soon after the last quake and be able to create new jobs and new economy. The culinary high tradition, the great attention to all the elements, and last but not least the remarkable effort of the two Bianconi brothers to face the post-earthquake, have brought the judges to award this wonderful place.

The submerged Village comes back to light again

In the province of Lucca, on the Apuan Alps, there is a village founded about eight hundred years ago by some blacksmiths coming from Brescia, submerged seventy years ago by an artificial lake created by a hydroelectric company. In 1947, the Edron torrent was barred by a 92-meter high dam that gave rise to the lake. The water submerged some villages, among which the main one was Fabbriche di Careggine. The 146 inhabitants were moved to the nearby village of Vagli Sotto. During these seventy years the lake has been emptied only four times: in 1958, 1974, 1983 and 1994, to carry out maintenance work done by the hydroelectric company, and the show appearing every time is always very impressive and fascinating. The whole country rises from its underwater torpor and tourists are allowed to walk through its narrow, moist roads to visit it until the lake is filled up again. Enel, the owner of the dam, seems to have no intention of emptying it shortly, even though it had been spoken of 2016 as a possible year for that.
