Photographer's Note

This is a view of Marina di Massa, the twin city of Massa, located on the coast of Mediterranean Sea, in the northern part of Tuscany, really close to the border with Liguria, Emilia and Lombardy. The Province is called Massa-Carrara cause there are 2 capital cities, and both have an omonymous city on the coast.
That small province is well know in Italy for the food, specially for fish soups and for the boletus mushrooms. The area on the coast is called Versilia, and the inner part is called Lunigiana.

On the image there is a view took from the long pier looking to the city centre of Marina di Massa with on the back the Alpi Apuane, famous worldwide for the Carrara Marble. The white areas on the mountains are some of the marble caves; the Pantheon and Trajan's Column in Rome and Michelangelo's David, are constructed of it.

In the summer months that part of Versilia is really crowded by tourists, specially during the week-ends, thanks to the not more than 2 hours by car from the north-Italy big cities.
The image was took on the first days of October, when there still was a summer temperature in the sea, hot sun but the beachs were totally empty of people.
