Acquaterme Italy

Because God loved the world, He gave someone He loved very much just so that those who believed He existed would not die forever but would be raised to everlasting life when He came at the last day.

John 3:16 and John 6:40 (Sandy’s understanding)

Acquaterme is a city in Alessandria Piedmont, northern Italy. A city whose streets were lined with market stalls and food cooked before your eyes, a type of street theatre. Look at this:

Polenta with black flecks just under boiling point in a cauldron.

A German couple informed me that those flecks meant a good variety. We all chose a plate full with a slab of zola cheese melting into the polenta slowly. ‘No need for supper tonight!” was their comment. I enjoyed a large amount then Bess had the plastic plate with a little left. I would have it again, a favourite of the local people and also on the menu in restaurants in this area.

You are what you eat, so don’t be fast, cheap, easy or fake!


I’m sorry for what I said when I was hungry.

Unknown ( Could be anyone in our family . My Dad and Dad Brian for sure!)
The Bollente Fountain.
A symbol of AcquiTerme and its thermal waters.
A Greek style temple designed by the architect Ceruti.
Constructed in 1870.
The water reaches 74.5’C
and comes out at 560 litres per minute, it carries sulphur bromine and iodine.
The river Bormida di Spigno .We crossed this on our walk to and from the town. The park up was just to the side of it.
No swimming .
The main pools are closed for the season but I did put my hands into this…
…a platter with a biscuit shape and colour
hot, hot water constantly running into and over its fluted side.

Oh, and I found these two sayings about eating:

Eating spaghetti requires so much attention you never feel lonely eating it!



The kitchen is a country in which there are always discoveries to be made.

Thank you for looking at my post.
