The Sorrento peninsula is a giant which dives into the sea. Mount Faito, 1131m above sea level, offers lucky visitors of the area protection, stunning panoramic views, a windy and cool microclimate. Around the mountain men have found a way to make use of every single meter of land that is perched on the rugged coast. Intrepid navigators and heroic farmers have built unique urban centers, with a search for beauty compatible with its panoramic views.

Here you can spend days, months, years to find out what people there define as ‘beauty'. Simple things like a lemon or an olive grove climbing on the rocks of the steep slopes. Then there are the ceramics, music, art.

To create something beautiful one must be in a stimulating place, perhaps this is why writers, poets, painters, musicians have passed in this place.
