What a beautiful experience! What a marvelous place, impeccable organization, delicious meals, nice hot weather and an absolutely fun time.This may sound more like a depiction of paradise rather than a simple concise account of the Young European Naturist Gathering at Le Betulle Club in La Cassa (in the Turin Province).Finally we Italians made up a large group of about 16, which is actually small when compared to the groups of other European countries, …....

Vritomartis Naturist Resort

Following the excellent advise of a friend, we visited the naturist Hotel Vritomartis on the island of Crete in the second half of May. As my friend mentioned, the hotel is owned and run by the Douroudakis family. What he didn’t mention was that this means a member of the family is in every key area of the hotel’s operation. Each ensures that their department performs optimally, from front house through kitchens, restaurant bars house keeping …....

The unacceptance of normality

We feel it is essential to discuss the idea of normality in a world where being -normal- seems to have become a defect and not a merit. It seems our culture is no longer capable of accepting normality. Everyone is supposed to be beautiful, it is almost compulsory, even when nature has not been so generous with us.This refers mostly to girls and women in general (but it is now starting to affect men too) whose model of beauty is that of soubrettes, …....

The Stupinigi Hunting Lodge

In the Middle Ages this expanse of land was referred to as Suppunicum [1]. It had a small castle - still standing to the east of the Hunting Lodge - that defended the town of Moncalieri. The estate was owned by the Savoia-Acaia family, the younger son’s branch of the dynasty, but it became a possession of Amadeus VIII of Savoy when the last of the Acaia family line died in 1418. Amadeus VIII bequeathed it to a Marquis of the Pallavicino family …....

The ethics of food and nudism

Science says, "we are what we eat". In other words "we are the results of how and how much we eat". As everyone knows, food is just as important to us as the air we breathe. Indeed it is indispensable to life. However humans must eat without exaggerating to avoid the extremes of bulimia (eating too much) and anorexia (eating too little). Eating must be ethical in its compliance with the principles of nature. Nature tells us to nourish ourselves sufficiently …....

The 45th and 40th anniversary of UNI and Club Le Betulle

The adventure, the passion for naturism began in the 1950s for those who would later become the founders of the UNI. Tom was telling me that to reach the LULU LE CORSAIRE ferryboat for Ile du Levant early he used to leave his hometown BRA in the middle of the night with his friend GIULIO PIANA. Piana later became the owner of the BORINGHIERI beer parlor in piazza Adriano and when he closed to retire he donated all the historical furnishings to the …....

Nature and Nudism: One Dimension

“Nature is so generous when we take care of it”: these are the words of a middle school student who wrote a composition after visiting a farm.She was astonished by how many fruits she was able to pick from just one tree. She later wrote in reference to that same prodigious nature “But its anger is equally terrible when we try to subjugate it and lack respect”.We often hear talk of the nature dimension, i.e. a dimension of nature and the relationship …....

how can we do

It is our custom at year’s end to offer some thoughts that can help us in the future. The year 2009 has proven to be a year of ‘keeping afloat’ with just a slight increase in membership due to the usual high turnover. However some very positive events occurred that can help us enhance the growth of our organization. We should also take into account that this year, for our naturist movement, it is the 45th anniversary of the foundation of the …....
