Vincent Maria Brunetti – Vincent City

Vincent Maria Brunetti, one of the most emblematic figures of the southern artistic panorama, also called the "dragonfly of the south", is one of the few painters who has made his life a protest, who has managed to free himself from the "system" and the grip of gallery owners, critics and artistic and cultural associations, building his little kingdom.

Monteruga: the ghost town in the heart of Salento

In the countryside of Veglie and at the crossroads between the four fiefdoms of Nardò, Avetrana, San Pancrazio Salentino and Salice Salentino, on the edge of a hill overlooking the sea of Torre Lapillo, in the heart of Arneo, stands Monteruga, now only reported by rusty road signs, the ghost town in the heart of Salento uninhabited since the 1980s.
