Where in the world: January
Through the lens in Manarola.
“It’s mid-summer when I take off on my vintage Vespa to Manarola, one of the Cinque Terre, or five small villages along the coast of Levante, in Liguria, northwest Italy. The coastal terrain is of exceptional and rare beauty, where man and nature work together. Manarola is my favourite of the five villages. The colourful houses have their feet in the sea while also conquering the hill – the windows facing the endless horizon of the blue Mediterranean. The best moment to view the landscape is in the early morning; the so-called calm before the tourists arrive and because the scenery is particularly astonishing at dawn.”
– Alessandro Capoccia, Italian photographer based in Paris
