What can Piandagli offer to people who want to escape for a week from the city, from the office, from the traffic lights, from the traffic jam, from the cold meal of the microwave oven, from the fine dust, from the double-parking? Anything but Ottaviano sees everyday. He looks out from the window and he can see sheep, goats, hens that scratch about guinea - fowl and, further on, there are pigs, rabbits, turkeys, pigeons and turtledoves. Milk, meat and eggs that can be tasted with the cheese, with the salamis and with the Norma's bread cooked in the burning oven. The vegetable garden gives the other important things. Each season you can eat its products and, if you want, you can also harvest salad, tomatoes, beans, onions, carrots, potatoes, pumpkins, peppers and spinach. Naturally, Ottaviano thought at the herbs too: there is the corner of the rosemary, of the basil and of the sage. In each season he has a lot of fruits: cherries, plums, peaches, apples, pears, strawberries, raspberries, kiwi, grapes, kaki, figs, nuts and hazelnuts. The bees look after the honey, Norma and Ilaria sees to jams and Serena sees to cakes. This is the normality, but people who desire to escape from the every day life, can go in the wood to pick strawberries, bilberries, raspberries and mulberries. At the end of September the chestnuts - harvesting becomes and, if the weather is good, it's possible to find all kinds of mushrooms, from the "porcini" to the "galletti", from the "grifone" to the "ovuli". As in a Walt Disney's picture, walking in the wood, you can meet the fox, the wild boar, the wolf, the fallow deer, the roe deer, the deer, the porcupine, the badger, the hare, the squirrel, the weasel. Up on the chestnut tree and upper in the sky you can see the hawk, the buzzard and, in the night, the owl and the barn owl. When Ottaviano was guest in the show "Maurizio Costanzo Show", he was surprised how guests of the show were incredulous and fascinated by these animals that are in his everyday - life and sometimes, as for the wolf and the fox, are source of nocturnal troubles. The last funny feature of Piandagli is that when you think to be lost or to have taken the wrong way, you are nearly arrived.
