A postcard from Capri with love…

Legend has it that Capri was founded by Koloneus, a handsome man descended from the Gods, Vulcan and Venus. He was sent to Capri to express his love, dedicating a sea stack to each of the women he treasured…
According to history, Capri was a Greek colony when it was “discovered” by the Emperor Augusts, on his way back from a journey to the the Orient in 29BC.
Falling in love with it, he brought it under the rule of Rome, marking it as a destination for the privileged to relax and nest. But it was his successor Tiberius who, after settling on the island for over ten years, established it as a place of grandeur. 

From the Roman emperors to the stars of Hollywood, no one can resist its charm. Over the years, everyone has captivated by Capri; an island rich in history and nature and famous for its elegance and elite visitors.

 

A very old story which continues to fascinate with its wonders

THE FARAGLIONI | FROM CAPRI WITH LOVE

Capri’s coastline is home to the towering Faraglioni, the rocks which rise majestically from the sea and one of the most iconic symbols of the island. These unique natural structures (coastal and oceanic rock formations eroded by waves) have each been given a name: the first, still attached to the land, is called Stella, the second, separated from the first block by a stretch of sea; Faraglione di Mezzo and the third, Faraglione di Fuori or Scopolo, meaning the head or promontory stretching into the sea. The Faraglione di Mezzo is characterized by a central cavity, large enough to allow for the passage of a small boat. 

These three formations have become so iconic that they instantly remind anyone of Capri.
They are also the protagonists of the unforgettable Dolce&Gabbana Light Blue campaigns, featuring David Gandy and Bianca Balti shot by Mario Testino.

Take a stroll along the sloping cliffs of Capri and admire the sea view, as you spot the famous Faraglioni in the distance. Your gaze drifts towards the Arch or Love, the natural opening in the rocks where girls sigh; longing the be kissed by the boy they love. Rumour has it that kissing here brings good luck.
