Friuli: A small compendium of the universe

Imagine being able to ski on snow-capped mountains in the morning, and then ditch the cold for a sunbathing session on a sandy beach in the afternoon. It’s possible in Friuli – a place that’s home to the Friuli Dolomites mountains peaking at more than 2,700 metres above sea level, and a coastline by the Adriatic Sea that runs longer than 110 kilometres. This northeastern area of Italy has it all – so much so that it has its own definition: “Il Friuli è un piccolo compendio dell'universo.” (Friuli is a small compendium of the universe.)

A class of Italian schoolchildren recently made the news when they announced their intentions to buy the island of Budelli, in order to prevent it from becoming the property of rich investors.
