222. Sea, Sun and Tranquility…

Roberto Cavalli222. Sea, Sun and Tranquility…

I’m in the middle of the Mediterranean Sea.   I left Cavallò and I am now sailing to Sicily, the largest island in the Mediterranean.
I am at the helm of the Bat-Zodiac and the sophisticated electronic equipment indicates the route to follow with accuracy and precision… I think for a moment of the great navigators of the past, guided by the stars, the currents and the passion to discover new lands… without the aid of GPS and electronic compasses…

I’m going to explore Sicily, an incredibly beautiful island, the crossroads of the major cultures of the Mediterranean basin. Over the centuries Sicily was invaded and conquered by different civilizations… Greeks, Romans, Byzantines, Goths, Arabs and Normans… owned by the Aragonese and Bourbons… each of these civilizations has left an indelible mark on the island.   The whole island is a very interesting open-air historical museum…

Sicily is also home of Mount Etna, which is the highest active volcano in Europe… it occasionally wakes up and erupts…

In my previous trips to this wonderful island I was fascinated by the COLORS and the SCENTS of Sicily,,, incredibly bright, living, shameless colours that intoxicate your senses… as do its scents… intense, fresh, primitive, unique, lingering, beyond the describable…

I am going to dedicate an entire collection inspired by the exotic beauty of Sicily…

The beep of the on-board instruments interrupts my thoughts and demands my attention…

I have to leave you, but only for a moment…

Un grosso bacio…

Roberto Cavalli

    Siiii, mi piace l’idea della collezione ispirata alla Sicilia!!! Sono stata a Palermo, ma come “turista classica superficialissima”, mi piacerebbe molto conoscere la Sicilia che conosce Roberto Cavalli…
