Itaca works every day to discover new houses and new places to know and explore. Each of the regions in which we operate is rich in history, culture and flavours that we try to share as much with those who are preparing to leave as with those who have yet to find their destination..
If they had asked me then what shape the world has, I would have said that it is sloping, with irregular elevations, with protrusions and recesses, so that I am always in some way like on a balcony, facing a balustrade, and I see what the world contains arranged on the right and left at different distances, on other balconies or theater boxes above or below, of a theater whose proscenium opens up to the void, on the strip of high sea against the sky crossed by the winds and clouds.
From on high, one can contemplate landscapes that look as if they have been polished, silvery green basins, hills that slowly descend into the valley bearing towers, bell towers, basilicas and monasteries. Clear sunsets, a red without excess, fade over fortresses and olive groves, amidst the sounds of bells and swallows. The light air gives a sense of physical euphoria.
Really at that moment it seemed to me that I was somewhere else, that I had reached the destination of my journey. From there I didn't want to leave anymore, I had already been there hundreds of years before, but I had forgotten it, and now everything was coming back to me. I found in the square the ostentation of density, of the warmth of life that I felt in myself. While I was there, I was that square. I think I was always that square.
I was lucid and smiling before that unique game of appearances. This crystal where the world's view smiled, it seemed to me that a gesture would crack it [...] There was all my love of living: a silent passion for what might have escaped me, a bitterness under a flame. Every day I left that cloister as if torn from myself, inscribed for a brief moment in the duration of the world.
Itaca selects and proposes Unique properties, so that those who are custodians of jewels to live can have the tool and the care to share them with those looking for more than one location to spend their holidays, but a place in the memory.
