Manarola

The poetry of Vincenzo Cardarelli...

Welcome to Manarola

Very close to Riomaggiore, and with similar kinds of houses and marina,
what strikes you sailing by is a large inscription on the facade of the small cemetery of the village.
These are the final verses of the poem “Liguria” by Vincenzo Cardarelli:
O aperti ai venti e all'onde liguri cimiteri!
Una rosea tristezza vi colora
quando di sera, simile ad un fiore che marcisce,
la grande luce
si va sfacendo e muore.
