Life in the Via
The Italians are connected to their immediate environment in a way that is striking to me as current day American. You can revisit a small street many years later and see the same senior citizens inhabiting the same bench. This sense of community is something to be revered and but rarely emulated elsewhere. The saying of “bella vita” is deep in their bones, whether sitting in from of their villa or lounging on the beach. They can find pleasure in relaxing, talking to and truly knowing their neighbors. These images were made during several trips over a few years time. My fascination for this country and the Italians that live in a life that defies our notion of past and present, remains and deepens with each experience.
