WHERE WE ARE
“I could not describe in words the vaporous light floating around the coasts when we arrived in Palermo in a beautiful afternoon.
The purity of the contours, the whole sweetness, the degrading of the tones, the harmony of the sky, of the sea, of the earth … who has seen them once will not forget them for a lifetime.” (J.W. Goethe)
