It became an elegant seaside resort in the 900. In 1924 the architect Cesare Bazzani finished the construction of a famous Art Nouveau style villa, 'The Paradise of the Sea', currently the town of Anzio, where Federico Fellini shot scenes in the movie at the Grand Hotel in Rimini for Amarcord, while Alberto Sordi you setting for the film Stardust.

About Our Family
About my family and me, I wish tell only that I work and I'm very busy for my job.
I live alone and I travel with my partner.
So I need relax, sometimes.
I understood that I have to prepare the holidays long time in advance.
So I wish tell that for the next holidays, like in the recent past, I can do the same experiences:
In Winter, I would one or two weeks for skiing
In Ester time, I would a trip in European town.
In summer time, I would 3 weeks from the second half of August 2016 with UK Intervac members (I prefer at South, or wherever).
The swaps can be simultaneous or non simultaneous, because I'm offering my second house.
About me and my family, I use tell only that I work and I'm busy for my job.
Because I travel with my partner and we did 5 UK swaps and I did alone a lovely USA swap in Mill Valley ( S. Francisco) long time ago.
I studed English, without much succes, and this, maeby, is the reason because I love visiting the English language Countries.
An exception can be Corsica, where we have been last summer, but I wish go there many times again.
My desire is also to have one or two weeks in winter time for skiing, possibly during a warm weather.
My favorite sport is wind surf, that I usually do from the beaches of San Felice Circeo, where I have a loft near to the sea (at only 300 m.).
I and my partner are very busy for our different jobs, so we need some relaxing holidays in the year.
Next summer 2016 from 10-31 of August we wish exchange traveling to London, Ireland and Galles. We offer a simulthaneous or non simulthaneous swap.
Last year we have been to Brighton and we would return there.
Next winter we wish exchange with a mountain village home for skiing, maybe on February 2017.
