Naples|Tomba di Virgilio
Thank you Patti! I love the idea of a mystical, gritty city. I hope to get to Naples some day soon. My grandparents on my father's side come from Campania and the southern parts of Italy. I'll take an espresso any day.
Thanks Patty for painting the diversity of Italian cities so rich in culture and great memories which mirror the present as Mediterranean civilizations trasmitted the world...YOU re so gifted in Fast brush strokes on the canvas giving the essence and heart of a place in a memorable way!!!
Thanks ..hug ALE..
It's wonderful to be able to view some of your experiences through your photos here. So grateful for the opportunity to do so. x
I never made it to Napoli back in '84... Many other places, but none to see Virgil. Your Polaroids are like a dream-sequence, allowing me to experience his tomb. What a wondrous gift you have, presenting us with every place you visit.
What is that book Higher Learning? I don't know that book, but i would like to meet it!
So beautiful, the writing and the images. Grazie!
Hi Patti, these Polaroids remind me of the Inferno by Dante Alighieri. Have you read it? I read it in school years ago, but I recently went back to it and had a completely different perception of the text. It made me think a lot about what's going on right now.
Thank you everyone and I will certainly watch Marin Eden! I misspelled the Margellina train station, which I will remedy.
Dear Patti, if you like Naples, I recommend the film "Martin Eden" directed by Pietro Marcello. It's a new transposition of Jack London's novel set in Naples.
Amazing images of Naples..just going back to great poets of human history
What a life you’ve lived! 😘
I so enjoyed your wonderful images and descriptions of faraway lands and their treasures. Sharing your travel experiences has brightened my corner of the world today - many thanks.
Love that you present Virgil with your Higher Learning. Must be amazing to visit his Tomb.
Thank you Patti. I have never been to Naples and probably won't ever get there. (But then, who knows?) Your post has sent me off to visit Virgil though. Here we go. Love this site. X
