Libro fotografico dedicato al Parco Nazionale del Cilento e Vallo di Diano. Versione inglese, seconda edizione.
If you look at the map of Italy you will sea a large headland, roughly trapezoidal in shape, at the southern tip of the Gulf of Salerno. This is Cilento, circumscribed to the north by the River Sele, to the east by the Vallo di Diano, to the south by the Gulf of Policastro and to the west by the Tyrrhenian Sea. Since 1995 the area has been protected by a National Park, established thanks to major efforts on the part of naturalists and environmentalists...
This book, Cilento, now in its second English edition, should be considered a tribute to this great environmental victory and the reasons for such commitment are clearly conveyed in Fulco Pratesi's transporting description - from the limestone massif of Alburni Mountains to the Infreschi coastline, one of the last still intact in Italy.
Cilento can only be truly understood by succumbing to the charm of Giampiero Indelli's pictures - the delight of an immense field of poppies and wild mustard in summer, so beautiful that it looks like an Impressionist painting, or the River Sammaro at its source cutting itself a passage through the sheer rock like a running blade.
