I visited Villa San Michele in Capri, it is undoubtedly unique and a living example of the dream that became reality. Perhaps a dream springing from a longing for beauty or an individual’s attempt to deal with his feelings of powerlessness.

The soul needs more space than the body

Axel Munthe coined ingeniously and may have devoutly believed. Is he perhaps like Icarus when from the heights of Capri’s steep cliffs he stretches out for more –

My home shall be open for the sun and the wind and the voices of the sea – like a Greek temple – and light, light, light everywhere!

These are my photos from this lovely house, garden and the spectacular views from it
