About me

I’m Antonio Violi. I like to travel, explore and photograph. This site is the place where the three things come together.

Your comments are always welcome, and thanks for visiting!

      You are welcome Antonio. I doubt you bake cakes everyday but there was no blogger award for “Mastering atmospheres”.. every shot of yours is really magic…sweet magic let me say 🙂 Congrats again!

      Grazie Martin, complimenti per il tuo italiano.

        Grazie a te, penserei che nel cuore e spirito non sono solo svedese, ma anche un po italiano 🙂

    Fantastic! I’m most interested in those of Pentedatillo, so I’ll keep looking for those at Artflakes. Many thanks!

    How can I purchase your beautiful photography for my home?

    • Antonio Violi

      Excuse the late response. The requests are few and I have not thought about how to market my photos over the Internet. I’ll be away for a few months and I hope to handle it in the fall.

      • Yvonne

        Hello again, Antonio
        Have you given any more thought to offering your photography for sale? Well wishes!

    Ciao Antonio, received your latest blog- fish market, can’t leave a comment, no facility at the bottom of page???? So, just to say great work, love the photos:-)

    • Antonio Violi

      Ciao Lynne, many thanks for informing me about the problem with comments. Grazie!!!

    Antonio – your photos are beautiful!!! I am traveling to Calabria next June with my sister and our husbands to see the towns where the ancestors of my father, Antonio, lived. Would love to correspond with you about the area. Please contact me at the email address that I registered with on the site if you would like to exchange some ideas. Thanks, Danielle

    superb photos and marvelous places in Italy.

    I am a descendant of Joseph Violi from Modena
    who established in Canada (Quebec) around 1820.

    Lucky you – 2 beautiful places to spend time. I have a house in the north of Italy and divide my time between Australia and Italy.
