Istanbul (Turkey). The Kiz Kulesi is not only one of the symbols of Istanbul, but it’s also a place where you can experience probably the most beautiful sunset you have ever seen in your life. And the day I captured this photo the sunset was even more special, with the rising moon and a star in the sky, which were representing the glorious Turkish flag.

Marrakesh (Morocco). The Jardin Majorelle (Majorelle Garden) is characterized by its famous tone of blue, as well as its cactus and other plants, which give to visitors a sense of peace and relax.
Bali (Indonesia). A stranded ship blesses passengers in Padang Bay waiting for boarding to Lombok.
Cinque Terre (Italy). A typical postcard-view of Manarola, one of the “Cinque Terre” (literally “Five Lands) in the Liguria region of Italy.
Baku (Azerbaijan). People are enjoying their lunch on the Caspian Sea seaside. Behind them, the modern skyline of Baku.
Ksara (Lebanon). Walking around the Ksara Caves and being surrounded by old wine barrels is an unique experience. The low light forced me to use a very high ISO, but the picture – still – gives the idea of an amazing place.
Shanghai (China). Walking along the Bund by night and counting the million lights of Pudong.
Istanbul (Turkey). I’m perfectly aware of the fact that terraces like this one are everywhere in the world. But for some reasons, those ones I see in Istanbul have something of magic, at least for me. And I like thinking that behind that set of jackets, coats and suits there could be a story – one of the many incredible ones – of millions of people living in this amazing (and suffering) city.
Istanbul. So benissimo che terrazze come queste sono ovunque nel mondo. Ma per qualche motivo, quelle che vedo a Istanbul hanno un qualcosa per me di magico. E mi piace pensare che dietro a quella serie di giacche, di cappotti e di abiti possa esserci una storia – una delle tante incredibili – delle milioni di persone che affollano questa meravigliosa (e sofferente) città.
Lastovo (Croatia). I like walking along docks: I always bring a camera with me, and fishermen are one of my favorite subjects.
I met this men in Lastovo (the Italian name is Lagosta) and – no need to say – my attention was captured by the big fish (I think it was a snapper) and the man that was preparing it. Very close there are some good restaurants, and he was arranging the dinner for some customers (including myself). The clear sunlight of sunset was colouring the scene with a nice warm tone.
One curiosity: in Milan there’s a place named “Piazzale Lagosta“. I think it’s the same “Lagosta” of the Croatian “Lastovo”.
Alpe di Siusi (Italy). The amazing landscape of the Dolomites – here, Mt. Sassopiatto and Mt. Sassolungo still covered by the snow – during a winter sunset, when these mountains get colored of a warm orange tone.
