Photographic print. A staircase, orange and peach Roses at a wall of tomb plaques in Alassio Cemetery, Italy.

The English composer Edward Elgar and his wife came for the winter of 1903 where he wrote a concert overture called In the South.

Alassio was featured as the location for a holiday in the 1944 film The Children Are Watching and in Alfred Hitchcock's directorial debutin 1925, The Pleasure Garden, a scene was filmed at the beach and in the gardens of Villa della Pergola at Via Privata Montagu 9/1.
