#9 Capri – Departure

And so it is, we leave Capri too, with new friends and a great curiosity to discover this crazily Mediterranean and artistic island trying to defend itself against the invisible and dangerous claws of unbridled tourism.

Thanks to Costantino Esposito and Giuseppe from Marina di Capri for the enthusiastic welcoming despite the preparation for a huge Formula 1-style regata with unbelievable sailing boats.
And then Nabil Pulita from Blue Capri for his wise explanations, Annarita from Kaire Arte Capri – Associazione Culturale for letting us know, walking amidst the culture, from which deep roots comes the justified myth of Capri. Franco Senesi of Liquid art system for keeping the artistic tradition alive in a modern way. And the guys from Caprionline for trying to create a sustainable tourism based on quality instead of quantity. And finally the “professor” for the appartment in the wilderness away from everything, hidden in the myrt bushes and a with a great view on the lighthouse.

All this, not even in two days, has been Capri. Wow…

And now, Procida, here we come!

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.
