#13 Ponza – Departure

There’s this “bad girl”, a Florence-taught photograph from Ponza, Federica Di Giovanni, but most of all a sort of alter ego of mine.
During four years, she’s been wandering in basically all the italian minor islands, only in winter, and she’s about to publish a photographic book called, indeed, “Islands in winter”.
I long to have it, walk through its pages, finding my own steps during these four months. You can buy it, or rather contribute to make it real at (not active anymore).

Furthermore she welcomed me sweetly in her enchanted, light blue, traditional ponzese house and guided me through this islands of fishermen – this is one, indeed – with too much stupid-kind tourism and a big will to rediscover its bloody incredible nature and sea.

Thank you, Federica.

Leaving Ponza this morning I leave my beloved Southern Italy (but I’m bound to come back soon!): a long leg, the longest to date, awaits me to Isola del Giglio…

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.
