This new book is part of the series on the art of receiving. We are in Capri, where Mariella Gardella guides us, with short anecdotes, in the peculiarities of the houses that make the wonderful backgrounds for the prepared tables.
Some houses are known to have belonged, or have hosted famous people and for some memorable banquets.
Our host leads us trough the beautiful sightseeings of the island and the curiosities of the social life, revealing all the secrets to create a friendly and relaxed atmosphere, an ancient trademark of Naples and it’s islands, along with the cooking art.
The photographic campaign is aimed at the tipical places of an island: from gardens to terraces, from villas to boats.
The book is completed by a rich collection of
recipes with traditional menus of Capri and the tipical dishes of the photographed houses.
The photographer Gonzalo de Alvear published his works on well known international magazines of interior design.
