Description - Naples by Antonio Attini
It is not easy to add anything to that grand, opulent, and vibrant book that is Naples. More than a city, Naples is a universe of opposites: it is a place blessed with great beauty and breathtaking landscapes, but it is equally dark and grungy, as southern Italian cities frequently are.Naples is aristocratic and ragamuffin, open and inviting, and, at the same time, unruly and secretive. This new addition to the "Italy from Above" series captures the unique essence of Naples: it affords a glimpse of the glorious architecture, from beautiful churches to private palazzos and their gardens.Firstly reviewing the city highlights, the book then heads to Pompeii and Herculaneium, the Amalfi Coast, and fabled Capri and other offshore islands.Through gorgeous photography and lively text, "Naples - In flight over the City and Campania" is an aerial volume devoted to the treasures of this intriguing region of Italy.
