I spent the last week in the Cilento region, an area located south of Salerno, in Campania. To be more specific I have bene in Paestum. A trip in a land of buffaloes and their “mozzarella” cheese, probably the best mozzarella cheese you can ever taste, open minded farmers and Michelin starred chefs, dense pine woods like the starred summer sky and long stretched beaches with incredible turquoise water. Not forgetting the main attraction, the ruins of Paestum famous for their three ancient Greek temples in the Doric order, dating from about 600 to 450 BC,all of them in a very good state of preservation. Paestum also is renowned for its painted tombs, mainly belonging to the period of Lucanian rule, while only one of them dates to the Greek period. However, this is the Tomb of the Diver, which is the most famous. It is named after the enigmatic scene, depicted on the underside of the covering slab, of a young man diving into a stream of water. I’s visible at the national museum located right in front of the archeological site entrance. Following a short sample of same pictures collected during my stay. At the end you’ll also find a short video, filmed at dawn, of the temples. A magic moment enhanced by the light and the silence of the early morning.
