Fine Art Photography of Italy
Black and White Photography by Jacqueline LaRocca
“La vita è Bella” – Life is Beautiful
Fine Art Photography of Italy features black and white photography from Rome, Florence, and Venice. In my opinion, Italy is one of the most visually appealing places to visit, thanks to its architecture, art, history, and food. Unlike any other place, even the most common objects are art forms in Italy. Gleaming colors of gelato, striped shirts of the gondoliers, and the glistening of the Campari cocktails.
My first visit to Italy
Furthermore, I have traveled to Italy twice, and equally, I was awestruck by the beauty. My first visit to Italy was approximately 30 years ago and as a matter of fact, I only visited Rome on that trip. I got a complimentary stay in a Roman apartment for two weeks being that I was lucky to have a sister living there.
I revisited Italy in 2018 when I traveled to Florence, Venice, and Rome. All three cities are masterpieces of artful living. Traveling by train between those cities allowed my husband and me to enjoy the incredible beauty of the Italian countryside. This experience in Italy was so beautiful that it made me cry when it was time to go home.
Venice “Serenissima” is a picturesque, romantic city. Florence “Firenze” contains museums filled with masterpieces of art. Rome “Roma” has magnificent architecture and ancient, historical sites.
My photographs from Venice include The Grand Canal, Saint Mark’s Basilica, and Basilica di Santa Maria Della Salute.
Photographs from Rome include St. Peter’s Basilica and also the Arch of Constantine, The Coliseum, Victor Emanuel Monument, and the Temple of Venus and Rome.
Florence features the Triumphal Arch of the Lorraine and The Duomo.
I hope to visit Italy again soon and capture more spectacular images in the other fabulous cities so come back and visit this website when you can
I invite you to take a visual tour of Italy through my fine art photography of Italy in the hope that you will be similarly captivated by the beauty of Italy.
