Foreword by Italo Zannier
A book of several circumnavigations, because Italy is also an archipelago of large and tiny islands.
The coastline is also a border line, peninsulas and islands have identities and roots immersed in the sea.
A book on those coastal territories preserving a landscape identity still intact and in harmony with nature.
Peripli made in different seasons as a Mediterranean coastal landscape has undergoes a metamorphosis before, during and after the Summer.
A pier, a stack, a tower … all are elements of a coastal landscape we would never change.
The Italian coastline has been undergoing profound changes.
Famous or unknown views are wonders that evoke our long history, landscapes of our interiority, of our belonging and identity.
The author writes:
“I take pictures of Italian coastal landscapes because I feel the strong evocative appeal of the sea and the Mediterranean has seductive attractive forces in its ancient myths …”
“… the epic of the first Greek colonization in Italy produced images and landscapes so powerful and identifying to influence any coastal vision of mine.
“… a good part of the Odyssey was imagined and scripted by Homer along the Italian coasts.”
