"Modica and its heavenly sights" on the Financial Times

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

I just came accross an interesting article about Modica on the Financial Times wonderfully written by Dan Hofstadter.
The title of the article is Modica and its heavenly sights

In spite of heavy rain on the day, Modica charmed the author with its stunning Baroque architecture, its history, its food and chocolate, of course!

Dan Hofstadter writes: "Modica is in the wealthy south-eastern part of Sicily and these provinces are scarcely touched by endemic poverty or organised crime. It is an exceptionally handsome city traversed by a wide boulevard, actually a riverbed that was paved over in 1902, after a flood."

I thank you for publishing

I thank you for publishing this article. I originally saw this article in Dutch here.... http://www.depers.nl/cultuur/317543/Hemelse-regen-overspoelt-Modica.html and since the accompanying photo is actually my own work from Flickr http://www.flickr.com/photos/sailorman627/2361697563/, I was curious to see if this was in the original FT article...... Anyhow, it looks like it was DePers boo boo.... but anyhow, a very nice article indeed and it reminded me of when I was in Modica and shot that photo so wet! Thanks for linking the full version.

Wrong link

You have linked the 'wrong' Dan Hofstadter to this article...the published author from New York of this and many other Italian articles and books is NOT the advertising copywriter from San Francisco. We should get them in the same room together, though!
