It’s no secret that I love Apulia. The region has a very pure and sincere side of peaceful olive groves and whitewash trulli, but it’s its more sensual and feminine side that I wanted to bring up today.
The creamy swirls of the baroque buildings of Lecce, the pinks and corals of the palazzi and the curvy shapes of the nudes of Ercole Pignatelli are a formidable counterpoint to the land’s roughness. This Italy after all, and beauty has many faces here.______________ You can buy Octaevo’s notebooks here (and get free shipping in Europe this month). See pictures of Apulia here.
