Naples: Via Tribunali

Via Tribunali

Timeless scenes like this are the stuff of everyday life in the old heart of Naples. I love the strong features of the people. This was taken from the steps of the Church of Santa Maria del Anime Sante del Purgatorio.

A sinister stencil marking territory of the S.S.C.Napoli football team hardcore supporters – the Ultras.Taken in the via Tribunali area of the city, an area that has a certain sense of menace for the casual visitor at least!

Amalfi: Hotel Albergo Cappuccin

Amalfi - Albergo Cappuccin

Currently lying empty and drifting into dereliction, the hotel still hangs over the harbour with stately elegance.

The longer it lays empty, the costs of restoration will escalate exponentially which is a great shame.
