Yesterday, I was in Paestum. I wanted to collect all the possible books and brochures about the interesting for tourists places. Since I accompany tourists in their visits in Campania -it's our region, in Italy- and because I'm a history lover myself, I look always for something new in this field. In Paestum, there was the XV fair of archeological tourism. It's a strange event because they promise it's the last time, every year. But they continue year by year. Probably, they find enough organizations who wants to pay the place inside the 5 stars hotel.
So, I went there yesterday.
One hour in the car (fortunately, my husband wanted to come with me and I had not drive myself) and the nature changes from the hills around our house to the plain with the Apennines chain in the distance.
I was not the first but there were not too many persons at 9 in the morning, so it was possible to pass from one stand to other.
The interesting part of this event is concentrated in one room. Those are the organisations of history lovers who try to live so as the people in this or that epoch lived. Here you can meet very "mad" persons. They love what they do so much so that they can tell you about every single piece hours and hours. I would like to hear them, too, but my husband waited me and he had to go to work else.
Here you can find jewelry creators. Their brooches is possible to buy. But they cost not less than 100 euros since they are from silver with precious stones.
Here you can learn how to create natural colors and use them in your life.
Many copies of archaeological finds created using the techniques of that times...
And that birdie in center is natural. It seemed very glad to participate...
The long tools in front of you on the right are the medieval keys
...and Sardenia was represented with different mannequins
I collected so many books and brochures that could not move more after about an hour. My husband was really happy to regain me: he had to go to work at the 13 and we had at least one hour of expressway.
Ahhhh.... The mountains of Salerno... Home...
