Two arresting views of Pianosa: above, the Punta del Grottone; right, below, the Roman Port, on the western side of the island. Cover illustration: the sun sets on Cerboli, as seen on the route from Elba.
Exclusive tourist destinations today, the seven islands of the Tuscan Archipelago (Gorgona, Capraia, Elba, Pianosa, Montecristo, Giglio and Giannutri) also evoke Etruscan and Roman times, epic naval battles, figures enveloped in romance or living in balmy exile… These jewels of the Tyrrhenian sea will disappoint neither the casual tourist who has come for a seaside holiday, nor the devoted aficionado who is drawn back here year after year.
This book is dedicated to all those who have yet to visit these isles (shame on them!), or wish to see them in a different light. With 200 clicks of the camera, Andrea Bazzechi distils their magic, moving the reader and filling him with wonder.
