2. Out of space and time
3. In between
The gulf of Naples stretches for 15 km in front of Naples: at the North side it ends with the island of Ischia, at the South side with the Island of Capri. In this limited space you find the 3.7 million metropolitan city of Naples, the volcano Vesuvio, the towns of Sorrento and Pompei and Ercolano … the latter two among the widest archeological sites from the ancient Roman time. It is easy to feel out of space and time (but not of meaning) here.
Obtorto collo, this is the minibus to the cute village of Anacapri, hill top of the Island of Capri. A walk uphill looks healthier
Flooded streets? The ancient Romans invented 3D pedestrians crossings, here in the archeological site of Pompei
Southern end of the gulf of Naples, relaxing on Capri island, the volcano Vesuvio in the background
The gulf of Naples from the Vomero’s hill, the Helm of the Italian artist Mimmo Paladino on the right, a sculpture recalling the peaceful time (the steel rays) after a long time of war (the archaic helm), as Naples fought for its freedom several times during its history
The surreal atmosphere inside Sant’ Elmo fortress, the uphill castle of Napoli

Once more I walked down to the village from the high pastures
They adorned my head with flowers and pine trees for the parade
Thrill is in the air, everybody is positioned, the show can start!
Folklore music first.
I am so eagerly waiting for the response …
Who will be the lucky one chosen as Queen of the Cows 2017 ?
Manifold are thy shapings, Providence!
Many a hopeless matter gods arrange.
What we expected never came to pass,
what we did not expect the gods brought to bear. So have things gone, this whole experience through!
To Pier Paolo Pasolini’s Medea and its peculiar filming locations in Pisa.
