For the month of September, we’re swapping the DTLA streets for the cobblestone paths and green pastures of Northern Italy. We’ll be working out of our Italy office in Val Camonica, located about two hours north of Milan at the beginning of the Italian Alps. Our copywriter/strategist Olivia and digital producer Francesco are based there year round, keeping the Flux international presence going strong.
Val Camonica is located at the mouth of Lake Iseo, about halfway between Lake Como and Lake Garda. The Adamello range of the Italian Alps rises up at the edge of the lake, creating the valley populated by many little towns, lots of goats, frescoed churches and ancient rock carvings. The regional cuisine is full of hearty stews, homemade ravioli known as casoncelli, too many types of cheese to count and lots of polenta. We’re ready for bellies full of wine and prosciutto, with some stunning hikes and lake swims to work it off.
We’re changing scenery to get deeper into some new projects, get inspired and level set. Plus, we think we’re more productive when powered by Italian espresso.
Ciao for now, LA.
