Sensational pictures. We were blessed to have spent 2 weeks there in October of 2017. My favorite city! Thank you
What sets you apart from all other photographers is catching those expressions on people faces. Wonderfull photos.
I wonder why Naples is missing in all this pictures. If you did not visit it yet, then I suggest you to fly there as soon as you can, then you will know what were you missing….
I was in Naples for several weeks recently. Stay tuned for my Naples work.
Grazie per le tue meravigliose testimonianze visive

Thank you so much for these wonderful photos. I love my country despite its contradictions. Capturing the soul of this land and its people as you did with your splendid images is a reason and an incentive for me to continue photographing every city, beach, hill, mountain, lake, or island of our splendid Italy.
