slow - movement

Nach der "slow food" Bewegung gibt es jetzt auch die bemerkenswerte "citta slow" Bewegung, die liebens- und lebenswerte Städtchen in verschiedenen Ländern anpreist auf ihrer noch rudimentären website


"Cittaslow, das ist eine Stadt, in der Menschen leben, die neugierig auf die wieder gefundene Zeit sind, die reich ist an Plätzen, Theatern, Geschäften, Cafés, Restaurants, Orten voller Geist, ursprünglichen Landschaften, faszinierender Handwerkskunst, wo der Mensch noch das Langsame anerkennt, den Wechsel der Jahreszeiten, die Echtheit der Produkte und die Spontaneität der Bräuche genießt, den Geschmack und die Gesundheit achtet..."

"Municipalities which join the association are motivated by curios people of a recovered time, where man is still protagonist of the slow and healthy succession of seasons , respectful of citizens’ health , the authenticity of products and good food, rich of fascinating craft traditions of valuable works of art, squares, theaters, shops, cafés, restaurants, places of the spirit and unspoiled landscapes, characterized by spontaneity of  religious rites, respect of traditions through the joy of a slow and quiet living."

Für Anders-Reisende auch zu empfehlen die aufkommenden "going local" websites: bietet für 43 europäische Städte Tipps von der lokalen Bevölkerung zu den besten Cafes, Restaurants, Museen und Sehenswürdigkeiten. Apps, PDF guide for 3 Eur each.
