Lucia Mauro's Italy - Italian Photographic Journey

  1. 1. FRIEZE FRAME Textures & Colors of Italy Photos and Text by Lucia Mauro
  2. 2. Interlocking corridors simultaneously conceal and illuminate the destruction of war and the renewal of peace. Sacred geometry… where marble meets sky .
  3. 3. <ul><li>Shadows from the Duomo’s glistening mosaic spires pierce the façade of a humbler dwelling. </li></ul>
  4. 4. <ul><li>The eye of a needle… a window to the soul… a Cyclops trapped in bricks and mortar. </li></ul>Uncertain celestial light beams down on a window – the result of a mathematical equation – which completes an octagonal castle built by sorcerers.
  5. 5. <ul><li>The Roman Empire emerges…through the foundation of a modern home…outlined in chiseled tablet form. </li></ul>
  6. 6. <ul><li>Napoleon’s army, goes the legend, looted stones from Roman sarchophagi to build restraining walls . </li></ul>
  7. 7. <ul><li>Even the street name has faded into oblivion, but not wholly. One discerns the faint glimmer of mosaic stones…the only source of light on this road of caverns. </li></ul>
  8. 8. <ul><li>Anonymous rebels scrawl existential nothings on an avenging angel. </li></ul>
  9. 9. <ul><li>A merciless sanctuary to time… </li></ul>
  10. 10. <ul><li>Atlantis rises again… like Botticelli’s Venus. </li></ul>
