Roberto Calbucci is a painter and freelance graphic designer. After living in Milan and Tokyo, Roberto and his wife Meloni Mitchell (model/designer) decided to set up base for a while in the Italian countryside in a tiny village called Montecarotto, to concentrate on their projects. Roberto works independently as a painter, focusing on his research: science, nature, entropy, and order-chaos.
The places below that he recommends for Citylikeyou are located near his small town.
Mezzavalle is a semi-hidden bay located on the Ancona coast, about a 40 minute drive from Montecarotto. To arrive at the bay, it’s a 30 minute hike down the hill. In the winter it has a great atmosphere of emptiness and isolation, a good thinking/swimming spot.
One of a series of rivers in the area, situated in the town of Genga (a 15 minute drive from Montecarotto, close to Grotte di Frasassi). When I was younger I liked to go there and draw, and think about the movement of the elements.
