Not there is that to say, you are very beautiful with your in bloom waterfront with the palms svettanti and exotic , than wonder the Public square of the Unit of Italy with the monumental Palace of the Government and beautiful Fountain of Neptune. Not enough! The eye runs after familiar images, friends, cakies visions that elsewhere are not, does not know, does not exist... the air is pure, the most limpid sea, breath well, is to house! The Peloritani sweetly is lain down nearly protect the city of the Madonna of the Letter, always sees the Bell tower of the Dome and that Lion roars because... Messina is immortal! The Madonnina of the Port bless the ships to the income: VOS ET IPSAM CIVITATEM BENEDICIMUS, I observe Her affected and, contemplating Her, me meeting to pray.

Also about you Madonna I speak,

The Strait of Messina

Today to ribalta for the various relative plans you to the construction of a Bridge (they want to once again destroy my city) between the two sides, would be longest of the world (approximately 3 Km). The Strait was already famous in the omerico period. The difficulty of navigation for dying of violent, unexpected and contrasting twenty, for flowing to its inside of marine currents, true and own rivers that cross it to the speed of 9 km. hour, making some to ribollire waters and provoking dangerous vortices, the particularitity of the fauna, the exceptionality of phenomena which the mirage of the Fairy Morgana , the fascination of the landscape that surround it, determined rising of a rich mythology in which the aforesaid phenomena had legendary transfiguration 

Why to deface this beauty of the nature? 


Between the two coasts, the calabra Scilla monstrous enchantress siren, and Cariddi, Greek nymph transformed in the frightening fatal vortex and gorgo of Pel˛ro Head. Of six hours in six hours the Strait is covered alternatively from one current produced from the tendency to the levelling of the Tyrrhenian sea with the Jonio.

The Strait without Bridge is beautifulst!

Why to disfigure this wonder of the nature?


Lakes of Ganzirri


This beautifulst landscape will be altered, if not destroyed, from the construction of a cursed Bridge

that not servants to the sicialian and their economy, still less to the tourism 

because Messina and its landscape goes well therefore, as the nature has created them, 

all the rest is alone political propaganda or, worse, megalomania than someone... thanks, not!
