#2 Alicudi – Departure

I leave Alicudi in the middle of the night to take advantage of the last wind before another calm down, stunned as if from a punch in the face.
A staggering, omnipresent, unavoidable beauty, mixed with the hardness of lives with little hope, barely any dreams, and a few people. And many modern foreign hermits looking for peace, moving and monumental.

And a school, in the picture, with three pupils and as many teachers, the only tenacious public place representing the government.

The project is conceived and realized by me, Lucio Bellomo, born in 1983 in Palermo, Sicily. Which is also Italy ;-) I am (not proud of being) an engineer in electronics. After the PhD I worked as a physical oceanographer in France, doing research on the physical phenomena that rule the oceans. I took part in several long international oceanographic cruises onboard research vessels. Eager for an even tighter contact with the sea, I left the University and today I work as a diving instructor, both SCUBA and freediving, in small Mediterranean islands and tropical seas. In my spare time I fancy sailing: I began in the Mediterranean Sea and am continuing in the Atlantic Ocean.
