Rental: Charming House in Framura, A Small Quiet Picturesque Town Near Cinqueterre, Italy

Looking for inspiration & want a quiet non-touristy place in Italy to stay?

Framura, 3 towns north of Cinqueterre, is a rural Ligurian town consisting of 5 traditional hamlets ( sub-divisions) divided between mountain and sea with views that it will take your breath away. Costa, a sub division of Framura has archaeological, historical and artistic points of view.

My house is on the piazza of the hamlet (or sub-division) of Costa which is set on top of a hill.

The house is my personal vacation house so I hope my renters will be respectful of my property.

If you enjoy interacting w/ the locals buying groceries or chatting at the local trattoria or if you are a creative person looking for inspiration, or want a quiet non-touristy place to stay, this is the place for you.

BASIC SPEAKING COMMAND OF ITALIAN IS REQUIRED as my associate who takes care of house for me only speaks basic English and will meet you at your arrival

Tues 2/24 Jane Grenier & Leigh G. Phillips Read at Women’s & Trans’ Poetry Jam at Bluestockings

Women’s & Trans’ Poetry Jam & Open Mike for Women & Trans’

Tuesday Feb. 24th  7pm – 9pm

Feature Writers: Jane Grenier & Leigh G. Phillips

Naked and pure, Jane Grenier is a fine conjurer of sinewy imagery. A radically jagged-edged writer, she throws a sarcastic blow at the bling and posturizing of modern fashion with brutal precision. Her writings are the voice of dissention, politically challenging, socially relevant and thoroughly entertaining.

Leigh G. Phillips uses experimental forms and personal narrative to electrify empathy and bear witness. She opens doors that are the reverberation of a ghost in the house of memory.

Tuesday Dec 30th 7pm – 9pm

Feature Writers: Elizabeth Morse &  Stephanie Schroeder

Elizabeth Morse is writing about people who take too many — or too few — risks in their lives. In recent years, I have been doing some political writing, triggered by fallout from the financial crisis of 2008. There were casualties. A character in my fiction has taken to embezzlement in hopes of becoming a reverse Robin Hood.

Stephanie Schroeder’s memoir, Beautiful Wreck, Lies & Suicide chronicles 15 years of misadventures as a lesbian with undiagnosed bipolar disorder in turn-of-the-millennium New York City. She will be reading about themes of mental illness, attempted suicide and recovery/mental health.

Poem: l’rondini di framura (the swallows of framura)

up from africa

for the season

to feast on insects

eating orchid fruits

and to hatch their babies

under drain pipes

and the corners of tunnels.

peaceful jets,

they pitch,

roll,

glide,

and float

down narrow sloping streets

and circle anicient towers.

poem: the protector


after mamma died,

nonna would sleep with me

in the big bed

in my parent’s apt.

dad coming home

after the restaurant closed

slept in my old bed.

as a teen

i wanted my own space

but had none.

i sometimes woke nonna up suddenly

as i in an adolescent sex dream

grabbed her.

and in the summer,

she liked the a.c. high

and i didn’t.

years after she died,

an old friend of nonna’s told me

nonna had heard

of widowers taking their daughters

and though she thought

dad was not the type,

she was going to make sure.
