Photographer's Note

ENGLISH: This is another shot of my "happy place" the Isle of Procida in the Gulf of Naples. The title of this photo means "Great South" and is taken from the song of the same name by Eugenio Bennato. The song speaks of a love for Southern Italy, the immigrations to other countries around the world, and the fact that those emigrants bring the South with them in their hearts. Bennato is Neapolitan and sings many of his songs in the Neapolitan dialect. I have provided a link to the song for you to listen to and I must thank our TE friend Valter (Bayno)
Bayno
who has opened my eyes to Italian folk music - and has turned me into even more of a brigand.

"...Great South that it will be
That anonymous song
Of those who go out into the world
Who bring the South in their hearts"

Grande Sud by Eugenio Bennato

ITALIANO: Siamo di nuovo al mio luogo d'allegria: l'Isola di Procida nel Golfo di Napoli. Il titolo di questa foto e preso dalla canzone Grande Sud da Eugenio Bennato. Ringrazio il nostro amico Valter (Bayno) Bayno
per aver introdotto la vera musica Napoletano a me. Se ero una brigante prima, ora sono anche di piu' :)

"...Grande sud che sar
quella anonima canzone
di chi va per il mondo
e si porta il sud nel cuore"
