In the land of Pinocchio

“Centuries ago there lived– “A king!” my little readers will say immediately. No, children, you are mistaken. Once upon a time there was a piece of wood. It was not an expensive piece of wood. Far from it. Just a common block of firewood, one of those thick, solid logs that are put on the fire in winter to make cold rooms cozy and warm”.

I decided to start this post with the very first words of the Adventure of Pinocchio written by Carlo Collodi not very far from the venue where this wedding was celebrated.

I chose Pinocchio because the little protagonist of this wedding fairy tale is a young boy who reminded me in a way the famous marionette. And by the way Pinocchio was also my favorite tale of my childhood.

So let’s make our how tale here, let’s take a fairy wrapped in a butterfly dress and a gentle knight. Let’s take a palace and crystals chandeliers. Let’s take a dreaming villa and in the middle of all this let’s Pinocchio have fun…and you will live an extraordinary day. You will end up dancing under a rain of streamers and confetti surrounded by palm trees.

This day made me a child again. Stories can be all around you if you let out of your heart.

I really need to thank the little boy of this story as it’s just for him who launched his puppet lion to his mom if I won a prestigious Fearless Award.

Once again on the lake
With Terra and Alex I started this wedding season 2019. Strange year this one, a year of changes and definitions to be. I could not ask better than driving up to the lake of como where I love the sense of decadences there it’s like living in old beginning of 1900, like living at another speed. Eveything goes slower on the lake shore, even your breathing. I took a break, looking at the lakshore while crossing with the ferry. It’s probably time to take things how they come, and be the best you can. To welcome who is ready to get in and let the rest behind. When I photograph is not just a job to me, it’s like a personal project every time ...

The secret heart of the tower
The secret heart of the tower Set amidst rural Tuscany there is a small medieval village. Right in the center of the village there is a stone tower which seen from beneath it does not seem all that high. But I was assuming wrongly, I assure you, it's much higher than what you would gather. And the climbing steps are countless, old steps and banisters as you hardly happen to see any longer. I can assure you so because those tiny steep steps I have climbed them together with Janneke and Dirk. Only once on the rooftop I then reminded that I suffer of vertigo. While we were squeezed in an old Fiat 500 searching for characteristic cypresses ...

Romance in the rain
It rained so much that day. It's a day of summer and the rain can be scary sometimes. Today it doesn't want to stop, the hills are surrounded by a thin whitish mist and the wind brings down drops so thick that they it's impossible to see few meters away. It rains too much, if it does not stop we could not even leave the door. They are a few meters to walk but the rain is really too strong. Luckily we still have some time to prepare ourselves, we still have the time to hope for the rain to stop. We smile, we are accustomed to these storms, usually do not last, the sun will come out and everything will run smoothly. We say it but we have no ...
