TELLARO, A SHELTER FOR ARTISTS
Tellaro is not only a place to rest, but is a genuine shelter. Mario Soldati, the great Italian writer and producer, moved in a beautiful villa just over the water and under the wonderful oak and olive trees that slope down softly to the sea. He enjoyed wandering through the tiny little carruggi leading to the bay and resting on the shore, enraptured by the magical atmosphere of this village.
The Italian poet Attilio Bertolucci was no exception, and here in Tellaro he rediscovered his poetic inspiration. In 1913, the writer D. H. Lawrence decided to moved to Fiascherino, at «Casa Rosa», for almost a year and wrote: “Here it’s very beautiful. I sit on the rock-cliffs in front of the sea for the whole day and I write. I tell you that it is a dream”.
