L Visconti S Cecchi D Amico alla Colombaia

Visconti who is?

Luchino Visconti, great genius of the theater and cinema now on the occasion of the 40 years after his death and 110 after birth, chose the island of Ischia as the ideal “buen retiro creativo” to wait for some of his works that became “masterpieces”. In this perspective, in the wood of Zaro, on the northern coast of Forio, bought a villa – La Colombaia - that, in time, and after the death of the master, has become a kind of controversial and mythologized outpost for the Italian culture and not just .


Forio, Discovering Manuel Di Chiara

I have to bother a bit of strong loves. Pictorial, that is. Because I like to create a conceptual tunnel under the skin of the visible, but in my image, to try to explain  in short - an artist. For a character like Manuel Di Chiara I follow this plot, with the help of our photographer Enzo Rando, who met with him at the atelier in the alley behind the Church of San Gaetano, in Forio.


On the streets accompanying San Vito

Ode to Spring

It’s Spring!
Ancient atmospheres, awake life,
fragments of memories ranging.
They feed the feelings of our consciousness.
Time waits.
There is a meadow beyond the hill

It is spring
