Hi everyone! I haven’t posted anything for a while because of many examinations that are stealing my time:P
I went to Florence some weeks ago to see Mumford & Sons exibition, but I couldn’t but visting the city!
I took some shots and some panoramas… Florence is always a wonderful city! But I felt and feel upset about how art is neglected in Italy. We hope that the mayor of Florence, Matteo Renzi, can make the most of artistc beauty of the city.

This fall I made some excurisions up on Appennino Modenese, starting from Fiumalbo. Fiumalbo is a very carathersitich village, unspoiled by new buildings and resorts, because of two rivers that circumscribed it. Fiumalbo is on the slopes of Monte Cimone, the highest mountain of Nothen Appennino.
On the first day of our hike we walked throught Val di Luce and Passo d’Annibale ( one of the hundred places in Italy Annibale il Cartaginese was supposeed to cross Appennino with his elephants!) and we spent the night in Abetone. The video up there was shot in Val di Luce!
The others photo were shot near Lago Baccio, few from chilometers from Fiumalbo.
Si, questo post è in italiano ( una lingua che so parlare un po’ meno male dell’inglese!), perchè il video che vi propongo è un omaggio a un grandissimo VJ italiano, ovvero Pier Francesco Diliberto, in arte PIF.
In particolare a una puntata del suo programma più famoso “Il Testimone”, ovvero “Voglio fa’ l’Americano”.
E’ una puntata a cui sono “legato” per tanti motivi, ed è stata un po’ il nostro filo conduttore durante il viaggio nella West Coast.
Qui vi ripropongo il nostro personalissimo remake della mangiata allo stadio durante la partita di baseball nella “All you can eat Zone”. Ancora un enorme ringraziamento a Pif e a Paul… And keep going!
After many months I’ve edited my shots from my last holiday trip in Tenerife.
Tenerife is one of the biggest island in Canary Island, in the Atlantic Ocean. Weì’ve choosen that location for many reason, but first of all… for surfing! In all the island there are many surfers spot, beautiful beaches and isolated bay.
The video ( except for the last 2 timelapse) is entirely shot my GoPro Hero 2.
The music is Welcome Home by Radical Face ( Yes, Nikon spot.)
Enjoy, and again sorry for my bad english
Here we are.
We travelled through Mojave Desert and we finally arrived in San Diego.
San Diego is probably the city that I enjoyed most. It’s amazing, and it’s more “on a human scale” than Los Angeles.
We spent two nights in Gaslamp Quarter and two nights in Litte Italy.
At the end of the video there is a short “summary” of the baseball match in the “All you can eat zone”!
By the way, for San Diego Padres fan, that day was the one of Trevor Hoffman Retirement Ceremony.
Hope you enjoy!
Here there are few photos of my last trip to Tenerife.
Tenerife is one of the most famous island in Canary Island, a Spanish archipelago located just off the northwest coast of Africa.
I’ve spent there about 10 days with some friends, in the southwest of the island, in a turistic location called “Playa de Las Americas”. It’s one of the best spot in Tenerife for surfing!;)
We arrived in the last indian reserve of our trip, on the south sides of of Lake Powell.
The whole region is awesome, but the city of Page is unique green spot in the middle of the desert.
On of the most important construction in that area is the Glen Canyon Dam. It was build from 1956 to 1966 on the Colorado River to supply the growing electrical power consumption. It’s creation created the second-largest artificial lake in the United States, Lake Powell.
On of the most interesting location near Page is Antelope Canyon! There are no words to describe it! Amazing!
After Page we spent a night in Williams and then we vist Gran Canyon.
The most famous National Park in USA ( and in the world) take your breath away, but in my opinion it’s too crowded!
In the video there is also few shot from Las Vegas, were we negleted the camera
Many miles travelled, but many more to go.
It’s August 14, after Canyonlands we entered Colorado and we arrived in Cortez.
After a night in Cortez we took our car to visit Mesa Verde National Park.
Mesa Verde is a Spanish term for “green table”, and it’s full of ancient stone villages builded buy Indians from AD 600-1300. Mesa Verde is very interesting but after a while is a bit repetitive!
We leave Mesa Verde and we entered Monument Valley, in the middle of the Navajo reservation.
I have few worlds to descrive such a mesmerizing landscape!
We also spent the night in a hogan, a typical navajo house, in the middle of Monument Valley!
After Arches we spent the next day going around Canyonlands.
There are no words to describe such a spectacular landscape!
You can’t see it in the video, but we spent the morning of that day going rafting along Colorado River, after joining a rafting group. It was AWESOME!
I recommend rafting in Colorado to everyone!
Here there are some 360° panoramas of Canyonlands!
We travelled many miles, but finally we arrived in Moab.
Moab is a characteristic town between Arches National Park and Canyonlands National Park.
It was the perfect point of departure for our trips!
Here is Arches. One of the most amazing National Park. Utah strikes again!
PS: This video in particular is a bit stupid because we are a bit stupid, of course!
