Isola di Capri, Italia…

“Our soul needs more space than our body. I want my house open to the sun, the wind and the voice of the sea – like a Greek temple, and, above all: light, light, light – everywhere!”(Axel Munthe)

This tiny island used to be called “Khapros”(boar isle!) by the Greeks, then, after the Romans arrived, they distorted the word and its name turned into “capreae” that later became “Goat island”; situated 40′ from Naples by hydrofoil, 1/2 day is enough to visit it, but I suggest a pleasant boat tour, as it allows to admire its cliffs and awesome grottos… 🙂

N.B. Axel Munthe was a Swedish writer and doctor who studied medicine in France; he lived most of his life @ Villa San Michele, Ana Capri – described in his famous novel “The Story of San Michele”, published in 1929, translated into, at least, 45 languages and reckoned as one of the best-selling books of the 20th century.


Have a light Friday and a Capri blue weekend, folks! See ya asap! 🙂
