who am I

hello, my name is Silvia. I’ve been posting  on these pages since 2012, telling stories made of words, photographs and little drawings about my everyday adventures. most of the time with me there is my boyfriend husband Marco, too. we live in Veneto, a region in northern Italy.

a diary
i diari della lambretta means the lambretta’s diaries. if you’re not familiar with the word lambretta, you must know that it’s a vintage italian scooter, in our case, a second series 125 Li, built in 1960 by Innocenti. we decided to buy it a few years ago, and started re-exploring the world, few kilometers at the time, with her. then, i began to share here the best glimpses of our wandering, both near and far. passion for good food, film photography and small gathering fits perfectly in the picture. 

a travel style
the main aim of the blog is to show favorite places, new discoveries and local tradition from a two {old} wheels point of view. the lambretta is hopelessly slow, you have to take your time to feel the road, read the map, look around, know what’s going on around you. so, she began to symbolize our approach to travelling. we like to travel off the tourist track, be attentive to sustainability, we’re always curious about local tradition, and street food lovers.to eat, shop and sleep locally makes us happy.  it doesn’t matter how many kilometers we’re doing, how fast we’re going, and even if we’re travelling with our lambretta or not {we travel without it, too}, the attitude is quite the same.

  1. I love your blog. My wife and I were in Italy and France for a month last year and your photography and stories make me pine to go back. We also both recently bought a 1980 Vespa P150X and a 1965 Lambretta LI150 Series III. We are getting them both to running condition and hope to go on great adventures like your soon. I look forward to reading more about your adventures. I wish you both the best!!

    Ciao!!
