Photographer's Note

Polignano a Mare, until 1863 called Polignano, is a municipality of about 18,000 inhabitants of the metropolitan city of Bari in Puglia. The oldest nucleus of the town rises on a rocky spur over the Adriatic Sea, 33 kilometers south of the capital.
The country's economy is essentially based on tourism and horticulture.
Of great naturalistic interest are its marine grottoes and historically important are the historic center and the remains of Roman domination. Among them, the bridge of Traiana, which is still viable, crosses the Lama Monachile.
Since 2008, Polignano a Mare has always received the Blue Flag award, awarded to European coastal resorts that meet quality criteria relating to bathing water parameters and the service offered in relation to parameters such as beach cleanings and tourist landings.
