The Border Land
Borders have always been seen as a constraint. A way of obstructing the passage of people and their heritage of knowledge. A means to enforce membership of one particular culture.
Lands thought to be different and incompatible.
The Karst crosses a border that once divided Italy and Slovenia, but now, in some way, brings their people closer.
Their customs and practices blend in a unique tradition combining the tastes and flavours that make up their history. It is not always easy to live at a boundary.
Past cultural, religious and linguistic conflicts have enriched this land of legend and incident, giving it a special fascination to visitors who are willing to look beneath its surface.
