Il Dolce Far Niente: The Italian Way of Summer

or 4 payments of  $22.25

A languorous August afternoon. That brilliant light and those impossible Mediterranean blues. The touch of sun on hot skin. And everywhere, the sounds of laughter and lighthearted conversation.

Il Dolce Far Niente is a gorgeous photographic ode to the magic of southern coastal Italy in the summer by renowned travel, fashion, and lifestyle photographer Lucy Laucht. 

Captured by photographer Lucy Laucht, these lyrical scenes of Naples, Ischia, the Amalfi Coast, Capri, Puglia, Sicily, and the Aeolian and Egadi Islands are an ode to the Italian way of summer and that distinctly Italian art of sweet idleness.

Throughout these pages, the spirit of summer will come shining through-shimmering blue seas, long, summer afternoons walking on the beach, those fearless jumpers diving off cliffs into the sea. There's a special essence to summer in South Italy-the pleasure of living simply. Lazing on the beach, perching on the rocks overlooking the sea, relishing moments of escape and calm. Organized by place, each destination is its own chapter: Naples, The Aeolian Islands, Ischia, The Amalfi Coast + Capri, Sicily, Puglia, and Pantelleria. Framing each chapter is a rule that embodies the sense of place such as Napoli's "Find Peace in Chaos"-follow these rules in your own life, and bring a bit of the magic of an Italian summer home. Brimming with photos, Il Dolce Far Niente is for anyone who loves Italy.
