We are a two families born in Fontona, a small village in the valley of Levanto,
of which the town of Fontona is one of the 18 villages present.
Fontona village is about 3km from Levanto and his beach.
The two houses in Fontona belonged to our uncle who was an artisan: he used to built chestnut wood barrels.
La casa del bottaio had been, for a long time, our uncle's workshop, now it is a comfortable studio flat.
La casa di Gemma is a indipendent house, on two floors.
