October is always been my favorite month, for a lot of reasons: summer heat is finally over, the light is amazing, I love autumn a lot, then next week it’s my birthday. In a few days a new edition of Rome Film Fest begins and I’m going to attend it once again, to watch a lot of (good, I hope) movies and take pictures. Actually it’s not a great moment for me and my photography, I’m a bit stuck, but it’s something that happens often in this job and I’m not really worried about it. So let’s find out what I have to show you in this eighth chapter of “Photography and Other Stuff”! First, an image of Monopoli that I realized for my series Urban Melodies: a beautiful sunset in Portavecchia area.Continue reading
New Video: Monopoli 2009-2022
Monopoli is a beautiful town and municipality in Italy, in the metropolitan city of Bari and region of Apulia. For me Monopoli, the birthplace of my mother and my grandparents, is a city of sea and sun, of love, of memories. I go to Monopoli every summer for a while and in the last 15 years I took a lot of pictures. In this video you can watch a selection of images I took in Monopoli between 2009 and 2022.

Photography and Other Stuff – Chapter 7
Here I am with a new Chapter of PAOS, that is not only a Greek island, but also the acronym for “Photography And Other Stuff”. I didn’t have time to fully live my city back, Rome, that I had to come back in Monopoli, in Southern Italy, for a week. So I didn’t take many pictures in Rome but at least I had the chance to take some photos in Monopoli again. I’m thinking of a new project and this month for me is a period of study, I’m trying to read a lot and I’m looking at tons of images to inspire myself. Let’s see what happens. I open this new Chapter with this image I took in Rome yesterday: a good way to mask your surroundings with art!Continue reading
My Apulian Summer
Summer is gone: I’m back in Rome, to my “usual” life, and now I have to look back to my Apulian summer to watch the photos I took, the life I caught, the moments I tried to keep in mind (and in the camera). It’s been a beautiful summer (even if I got the Corona), full of things to do, waves to swim, friends to meet and streets to walk. Of course I took a lot of pictures, included something for my series Raindrop Blues and Film People (not in this post, but there will be in the next chapter of “Photography and Other Stuff”, coming soon). Here a small selection of some (maybe) good street photo of my summer in Monopoli (and other cities too), hope you’re going to like it! All the pictures are taken with Ricoh GR III Street Edition.Continue reading
Photography and Other Stuff – Chapter 5
Hi everybody, here is a new chapter of our PAOS. I’m happy that you appreciate this new feature of the blog, so let’s go with a new post full of images and more. Well, I don’t have Corona anymore, so last week was more interesting for me: I went back to Rome for the weekend to attend a wedding (and take pictures to my just married friends), so I had the chance to take some photos in the train station and more. Than I came back to Monopoli, in the Southern Italy, where I had the chance to visit more towns not far from here: Polignano a Mare, Cisternino and Locorotondo. I close this introduction showing you a photo a took in Termini Station in Rome, sunday morning at 7am.Continue reading
