Art and culture

Among the many literary men who have quoted the Cinque Terre in their works (Ursone, Dante Alighieri, Boccaccio, Vincenzo Cardarelli, Telemaco Signorini) the most importat of all is surely Eugenio Montale, Premier Nobel for literature in 1975, who spent many years of his life in his house in Monterosso. 
Amongst the painters we must not forget Telemaco Signorini, 19th century artist, considered the leader of Macchiaioli, who lived and worked in Riomaggiore for many years of his life, and Silvio Benedetto, a contemporary painter, author of great “murales” in front of Riomaggore station, as well as other works of art inside the local municipality.
