Riomaggiore, Cinque Terre, Italy Wall Mural by Galen Crader

Riomaggiore Cinque Terre Italy Wall Mural

An Artful Depiction of Italy's Cinque Terre Region
Galen Crader is a musician, actor, television personality, and attorney who loves Italy's Cinque Terre region, particularly the town of Riomaggiore. The Cinque Terre, literally "five lands," also include the towns of Monterosso al Mare, Vernazza, Corniglia, and Manarola.

To celebrate his "favorite place on earth," Galen Crader designed a large-scale wall mural in vibrant multicolored tones. Amazingly, this is the artist's first painting project!

To appreciate the size of Galen Crader's one-of-a-kind Riomaggiore masterpiece, view the full mural and pay special attention to the lower left and right corners where you will see two electrical outlets.

I've never tried to paint anything before this, so choosing to start with such a huge project was a big mistake. I seriously doubt I will ever paint anything else, but I'm pleased with how this is turning out.

Cinque Terre is the Five Lands
Riomaggiore is the most southern village of the five lands known as Cinque Terre. The small town is located in a valley in the Liguria region of Italy.

When traveling north from La Spezia, Riomaggiore is the first of the five lands one would encounter.

The village, which dates back to the early thirteenth century, is a popular tourist destination. Riomaggiore is also a producer of fine table wine, made by grapes from surrounding vineyards.

Riomaggiore is famous for having numerous aquariums and zoos, all featuring native Italian animals and sea life.
