READING IN THE SUN
Camille’s summer ritual
"In summer, time is marked by the pages of the novel I'm reading."
Camille has packed only the essentials for her days off: an analog camera, some comfortable and light clothes, and a good book.
In the quiet of the Tuscan hills, accompanied by the song of cicadas, her hands brush and turn the pages until the story ends.
A DAY AMONG OLIVE TREES
Raul’s summer ritual
"I like to take the time to care for the places and people I love."
Raul is a filmmaker who loves to create the perfect set for dinner with friends - setting the table, tidying up the garden, and in the meantime, enjoying a few moments of sweet idleness.
He took us among the olive trees and dry stone walls of an Apulian masseria, where everything becomes easier and clearer under the rays of the sun.
CROSSWORDS BY THE POOL
Cecilia's Summer Rituals
"I like to focus on something completely different than the usual, away from the noise of the city."
Cecilia is a designer in constant search of beauty in everything around her. Whenever she can, she takes her mind off the everyday hustle and leaves the city to enjoy small moments of summer tranquillity.
On the lawn, by the pool, between a puzzle to solve and the right word to find, time seems to pass more slowly.
EXPLORING THE WINDING ALLEYS
Andrea’s summer ritual
”Slowing down means looking at everyday things with different eyes: it may be a particular architecture, or the way the piece we wear is made.”
The scent of the sea, the wind in your hair, a light linen garment caressing your skin: for Andrea, summer is a cycle of memories that, as he strolls, resurface from childhood.
Andrea brought us the alleys of the island of Procida, Italy, where you can discover something new every time you turn a corner.
