What is the Bel Paese you ask?
"It is a mixture, a sum of many elements: flavors, history, landscape and cultures. It’s the feeling of the abundance just before the harvest. It’s the contemplation and awe while walking through Pompeii or the Etruscan tombs in Cerveteri, the theatre and fantasy of Frascati gardens and the valley of the temples in Agrigento. It’s the pure pleasure of drizzling olive oil on dense durum wheat bread, spotting the shepherd and his flock on the hill, candlelit dinner in a cave and driving the tractor plow with my 3 year-old son August."
Since its founding in 1989 under the tutelage of director Tonio Creanza, Messors has worked on a host of preservation projects in the Puglia region in Italy covering archeological research, restoration projects on frescoes, wood and stone statues, decorative painting, guided tours, educational field school projects and study abroad university programs.
"I do not want to preach, I really just want to share, believe it is all possibe and have fun doing it. If I could harvest, meet people and work with with them to conserve and restore, and feast with my wife, son and traveling friends every night I would."

Editorial Praktikantin Veronika Salzseiler berichtet: Lissabon ist Liebe auf den ersten Blick; die rustikale Altstadt mit den kleinen gekachelten Häusern, den vielen Hügel und Treppen, die freundlichen Menschen und vor allem die unglaublich gute Ess- und Kaffeekultur.
Lissabon war einst die Stadt, von der aus sich Seeleute auf den Weg machten die portugiesische Sprache und Kultur auf der ganzen Welt zu verbreiten. Heute steht Lissabon selbst unter vielen kulturellen Einflüssen und ist ein beliebter Ort für Kreative aus der ganzen Welt.
