Sculptures by Igor Mitoraj at Ravello's Auditorium Oscar Niemeyer
Every year the Ravello Festival is centered around a theme running through the art exhibitions, concerts and cultural events that take place during the summer. Memory is the theme of the 2012 Ravello Festival and the current exhibition Memoriae, Mitoraj a Ravello. The monumental sculptural works of Polish artist Igor Mitoraj are on display on the terrace of Ravello’s Auditorium Oscar Niemeyer, and the setting is spectacular. This is exactly what that grand space was created for, and I hope Memoriae will be the first of many exhibitions. I stopped by not long ago . . . → Read More: Memoriae | Igor Mitoraj Ravello Festival Exhibition
January blue skies and the turquoise sea in Amalfi
Welcome 2012! It’s been a momentous beginning to the new year for me, and soon I’ll have photos and stories to share of my wedding in Amalfi on January 4th.

If you enjoyed the Autumn Walk in Scala, you’re going to love coming along on a beautiful autumn walk through Ravello. Happy autumn wishes to all of you from the Amalfi Coast!

The colors and scent of autumn bring to my mind two things – my mother, who taught me to treasure nature and its many wonders, and the poetry of Robert Frost. As it would happen, they are both very much related since she was the one to introduce me to Frost’s writing with a small book of his poems tucked into an Easter basket when I was a young girl. I still treasure that little blue book! While the days of this October are coming to an end, I have been savoring the beauty that arrives this time of year with . . . → Read More: October – Slow, slow!
