PORTOVENERE

TRAVEL JOURNAL

“I use photography as a means to interpret the world and as a visual diary of his travels and his most intimate thoughts.”

Coming from Roman times, where Potovenere was a fishing community, the small coastal town located in the province of La Spezia in the Liguria region and south of the Cinque Terre, is currently one of the most visited places for its romanticism involved in an infinite range of colored houses, steep steps and narrow alleys.
