We could begin with the words of a great Ligurian writer, although not one of the many who have tried to describe Portovenere, or who chose it as a homeplace in the hope that it would give a bit of its beauty to their works.
(…) all that can be imagines can be dreamed but even the most unexpected dream is a puzzle that hides a desire, or its reverse, a fear. Cities like dreams are built of desires and fears, even if the thread of their discourse is secret, their rules absurd, the perspectives deceptive, and everything thing hides another one.Perhaps Portovenere is a dream, made of fears and desires that live in the projection towards the infinite, in the architectures of defense, and in the alleys that weave a secret plot of surprising perspectives, different each time and explained only by an overall look of infinite beauty.
