In the beginning of August a long time ago, tied to the rigid safety belt on a heavy institutional helicopter with the legendary photographer of Il Mattino, Antonio Troncone, we had to make a report of the press and tourism and, for a few minutes, we touched lightly crests of hills upside down, because our phantasmagoric pilot wanted to play a little bit with us guests on board, bipeds with roots accustomed to the ground!

Succhivo develops in all streets that flank secular gardens, wineries and farmhouses, immersed in silence because not reached by the noise of cars. 


Auteur Forio

The islands are always like ships at anchor. Set foot on an island is like getting on a boarding bridge: it is taken from the same magical sense of suspension, it seems that nothing bad can happen to you; and while the "Princess" was slowing down in the tiny cove of Porto di Ischia, the sight of pale colors which is flaked on the houses of the port, seemed familiar and beneficial as the beating of his own heart.


Sant'Anna in Lacco Ameno
