Photographer's Note

Image from the high of the cliffs of Punta Spartivento, near the light house of Palinuro, I'm about 100 meters over the sea.

Note for italian spoken people: ho aperto la discussione sul meeting di Frascati proposto per settembre, grazie all'aiuto di Attila (atus) ho risolto i primi problemi da pivello del forum, ecco il link del forum dove reperire informazioni e dare le vostre opinioni e le vostre eventuali adesioni, grazie a tutti, Vinicio.
Palinuro, pleasant resort on the Cilento coast, rich of hotels and extra facilities, took his name - following the legend - from Ulisse's steersman; it keeps evidence of the greek civilization in the necropolis and ruins of the castle and of the church of S. Giuliano (XII century); in Molpa (a close place) are the rocky stations of Primula Palinuri.

The resort also gives the scientific name to the lobster (Palinurus vulgaris). The trip on the boat, around the promontory, allows to visit a group of natural caves (Azzurra, del Ribalto, Fetente, del Buon Dormire, delle Ossa) with stalactites and walls keeping human bones and prehistoric animals remains. Not far, the high part of the hamlet S. Severino is an exemple of medieval settlement, already abandoned for several decades.
