Photographer's Note

Clouds over Capri.
This is the most extolled of all the Parthenopean islands and the most loved by the elegant and cosmopolitian public. Capri lies about 17 miles from Naples and is less than 3.5 miles from Punta Campanella located on the coast of Sorrento. It is 6 km long and 3 km wide. Marina Grande is its port. The Greeks reached it in the VIII century B.C., but its most successful period was that of the Roman emperors Augustus and Tiberius who built sumptuous villas here.
