Bussana Vecchia, the artists’ hamlet

The medieval hamlet of Bussana Vecchia was destroyed in 1887 by an earthquake and almost all the inhabitants died.

The survivors were obliged to escape from the village, which became a ghost town. But during the 50s the artist Mario Giani (artistic name Clizia), found out the hamlet and he fell in love. He put out a challenge to the Italian and foreign artists: renovating and restoring the village respecting its history. The hamlet, the workshops, the museum, the botanical garden represent the new life coming from the ruins.
