Naples – The City That Makes You Pass Out

I find in the Neapolitan people the most brilliant and vibrant industry, not to get rich, but to live without occupation.

(Johann Wolfgang Goethe)

Every time I go back to Naples it’s like a dive without a parachute in a reality far away from any other social situation I’ve seen in Italy: noble neighborhoods like Vomero mingle with the spanish ones, and the poor, of Sanità.

Morocco – An Endless Trip

“Travelling, one accepts everything; indignation stays at home. One looks, one listens, one is roused to enthusiasm by the most dreadful things because they are new. Good travellers are heartless.”
― Elias Canetti ―

In Morocco, more than in other places, is so. Islamic and in respect, a society in some ways less advanced than others but perhaps, much more advanced in aspects of humanity and respect.

Wide Angle Street Photography

Street photography is perhaps the highest form of free interpretation of what is today’s society.

The way to achieve moments of real life is always a free choice of the photographer but with experience we understand which lenses are most suitable than others.

Carnival Of Venice, Italy – A Colorful Trip

“Venice is like eating an entire box of chocolate liqueurs in one go.”
― Truman Capote ―

A unique place that is able to activate a sense of peace and tranquility even when it is submerged by a river of people, maddened by the joy of the carnival. One of the most beautiful in the world, indeed.

Rome (Italy, Europe). Portaportese is a historic roman market where every sunday the intimate life of the italian capital takes place.

Munich, Germany – The Little Bavaria

“Of one thing there is no doubt: if Paris makes demands of the heart, then Munich makes demands of the stomach.”
– Rachel Johnson –

Munich in Bavaria, the bavarian capital geographically speaking, and the beer capital in practical terms. A half liter bottle of water costs about four euro and a Maßkrug (1 liter of beer) exactly half.

Florence, Italy – A Unique City

“The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes.” ― Marcel Proust ―

Tuscany (Italy, Europe). Perhaps the most popular destination for travelers, rich in nature, breathtaking landscapes, excellent wine and maybe he highest quality food in the world.

Dachau, Germany – The Green Lager

“The Mighty And The Helpless” […] The green barrack buildings could be distinguished through the barbed wire. Even at a distance you could see that all was meticulously clean; the merest fragment of litter was absent. An air of foreboding permeated the place – frightful, cold as death. Never before have I experienced an atmosphere so uncompromisingly dangerous or so friendly hostile…

Foreword: I am not jew, my parents baptized me and I found myself to be a catholic christian. Everything I write in this article, albeit short and quick, is not conditioned by religious beliefs.
