If you manage to make your way through the tourists posing for ritual photography, you will find that the Sagrada Familia in Barcelona is truly an extraordinary work.
One of the things to see absolutely in the Catalan capital. It is not important that it is unfinished (this is just a big marketing operation that has lasted for a century) but what is already there is extraordinary.
On the façades the story of Jesus is told, from birth to death. In the interior there is the celestial Jerusalem, inhabited by the Lamb, by the son of God who has finished his earthly sufferings and lives in Paradise, at last saved. The Sagrada Familia is an immense Christian symbol, a kind of biblical story in stone.
Ask 15 euros to visit bags of cement piled up inside, is another matter.

Born in Riccione, a seaside town on the Italian coast of the Adriatic Sea. Of Italian father and a Russian mother, I always define myself a crossroads of cultures, in fact I never identified with a nationality, considering myself a real world citizen.
From the early years of life I've traveled, living periods of time abroad, experiences that have further increased my openness towards the new and the different, and the ability to think outside the box.
I'm graduated Expert for Tourism, and continued hmy studies with a Masters Degree in Economics and Management. During and after the studies, I had a multitude of different jobs, mostly oriented towards tourism (my true passion, together with art and opera). Since 2008 I lives in Milan, working in the finance department of an Italian multinational company.
My passion for culture, led me to found in 2013, Kitabu, a publishing house specializing in the publication of books in electronic format, with which in 2015 I launched various projects regarding web-based magazines about different cultural and leisure themes, on of wich is TravelTv.
Despite the many commitments, however, I've never stopped traveling extensively the world, trying in every place to identify myself with the local population.
