Few places in the world can boast a spirit so interwoven with archaic and archaeological values, both experimental and metamorphic. In a word: Capri is modern.
Writer, lecturer, curator, and journalist Cesare Cunaccia is the author of this magnificent book that allows you to bring to your home the spirit of Capri, a resort island full of ancient charm dating back to the height of the Roman Empire. Cherished by everyone from physician Axel Munthe, who recommended its clean air to his patients as a cure for bronchitis; to film director Jean-Luc Godard as the setting for his 1963 film Contempt; to literary icons, celebrities, poets, and the jet set. Capri boasts a rich Mediterranean spirit and style that encompasses a wealth of beauty, from gardens to villas to caves to the people walking in the lively Piazzetta, where cars are prohibited and the island’s playful attitude runs rampant. Capri Dolce Vita is a look at this fabled corner of the world through the ages and a celebration of paradise on earth.
