Museo Filangieri

The Museo Filangieri is an eclectic collection of artworks, coins, and books assembled in the 19th century by Gaetano Filangieri, Prince of Satriano. This museum is a true Neapolitan jewel is a small and beautiful space with fascinating artefacts including a beautiful collection of biscuit porcelain. This gem is not to be missed on a visit to Naples.

Winter Colours

I spotted this huge boat chain resting on the dock, and had to capture the beautiful colour combination it created. I love the cold silver of the metal against the blistered red of the floor; it is so wintery and yet has a warmth to it.

Francofonia

This incredible film written and directed by Aleksandr Sokurov is a must-see. It is a history of the Louvre during the Nazi occupation and a meditation on the meaning and timelessness of art.
