Hello, i'm Margherita, and i work and live as an architect in Milan, after having lived for 20 years in Germany. Together wit hmy sister Laura, who lives in Florence, we purchased years ago a stone house in the ancient hamlet of Biassa, between La Spezia and Riomaggiore. There we meet with friends and sons: we love tranquility, walking in the woods and the sea of Cinque Terre, our humbly furnished house, the fire in the hearth, and the old walls.
