A mere hour and a half away from Bedonia lies one of the most frequently requested areas to visit, the gem of the dramatic Riviera Levante, which runs from Genoa to La Spezia - the "Cinque Terre"; Monterosso, Vernazza, Corniglia, Manarola and Riomaggiore.
In 38 years of trade, Adriana has made a name for herself, and has contributed to make our excellencies known far from home. We hope that others will follow her lead, and continue to appreciate all the goodness of this land.
Summer highlights apart, Bedonia is a normal town, with its normal everyday town life, and now that schools have begun the new year, we would like to spend a few words on one in particular, which has recently been attracting well-deserved attention.
There is no doubt about it - this is the land of mushrooms. Our local towns have obtained IGP certification (Indicazione Geografica Protetta), because the mushrooms which "are born" (the Italian way of putting it) in this territory are simply better, and that's all there is to it!
Cavignaga, a nearby village whose inhabitants, at the end of the nineteenth century, was essentially composed of women - white widows; wives, mothers, sisters and daughters whose men had been robbed of them by .....bears. In that period, Cavignaga counted 60 bear trainers out of a population of 200!
In January of this year, our local administration was approached by "Help for Children" and offered the opportunity to adhere to what sounded like an excellent project - a twinning between Bedonia and Belarus. The experience exceeded all expectations and was a huge success.
