Here, peoples’ lives are regulated not by a clock, but by the flow of a waterfall. Far from the city, the pace slows down, peace surrounds you and time fades into clouds of steam.

Not far to reach. Go on! Stretch out your arm. Imagine you’re touching it. If you try, you’ll feel the sensation of water droplets caressing your face. Milk white, the waterfall gushes down the rock and ends its mad dash as spray and foam. 

To enjoy this scenery, you’ve just passed through the village of Foroglio, a picturesque jewel of a place with rustic cottages, vegetable gardens and an abundance of greenery. It’s a welcoming and enchanted place, like in a fairy tale about dwarfs and elves. Here silence reigns supreme except for the thundering waterfall that dominates the village.

You move on, as though you were charmed by a siren’s song, walking along a short path through meadows and woods to get as close as possible to the waterfall and its beauty.

Refreshed, you stop for a break at the village restaurant: that sound and the regular rhythm have given you a thirst. Sitting under the cool fronds of the trees, you sip a soft drink. The gurgling sound as you pour the gazosa into your glass, the colour that is so pure and the sparkling droplets on your hand are similar in all respects to the waterfall.

And, if you look up, you’ll see it. There it is, more spectacular than ever.
