For my friend I

This post is especially to my friend I, because I know he would love to stand here, at the Terrazza Mascagni, and watch the container ships enter the port of Livorno.

To see the tugboats and pilots in action.

In rough weather there can be a swarm of tugs around a ship this size. But on a calm day like this one is enough.

I hope you’ll stand gazing here one day, in this magical spot, where even the freight ships become beautiful!

So, I am back home after a very different trip. The first trip to Livorno that wasn’t about photography. Nor vacation.  It was about getting a little place of my own. An exciting and exhausting process that will hopefully lead to good things in the future.

These were the first two items to move in while the flat was still being painted, you might recognise the photo from the exhibition of mobile photos, Uno sguardo dentro la città.

The Venezia quarters, close to the harbour in the old city centre and crisscrossed by canals, is now a place I can call home. How amazing is that?
