Italia Nostra of Luca Carra

Whenever I get the chance to, especially in the winter, I like to stroll along the beach of Sori, near Genova and amuse myself by throwing flat stones in an attempt to make them bounce on the water while my kids are enjoying themselves looking for things which the sea has brought back to shore.
