Two weeks before Lina came I was speaking with Simona, “It would be nice to show something typical of our Italian style of life” so she proposed to go for a Fraschetta.

Going to a  Fraschetta it means go out of the city, it means  really simple and genuine food. So me Lina, Simona and Silvia went out of the city for a day to spend on the lake of Castel Gandolfo.

And again we end it up with shopping, coffee and ice cream. That sound quite italian girls style for me!

But this week it wasn’ t just about food and Italy, it has been also about work, scouting location, photoshooting, inspiration, blogging…

Here some beautiful place. This was a beautiful evening: between olive trees, vinegards, fields. An amazing evening light and me and her playing around with dresses and backgrounds, lenses. So inspiring.
