L'Ultima Estate / The Last Summer

Shepherd stories from Mount Maiella

by Bruno D'Amicis and Luca Del Monaco

MAC Edizioni, 2014


The pictures you will see in this book needed a special care to be taken. You cannot simply go and photograph a shepherd, you will need to photograph with the shepherd, meaning with this that you will need his complete collaboration. And, believe us, there is a rather big difference between the two expressions. Solitary and shy by nature, often incredibly discreet about their own privacy, shepherds surely rank among the most elusive and difficult subjects to be photographed, especially on the Apennines...

Ornata - The most beautiful chamois of the world 

Darwin Edizioni, December 2011


This is the uncompromising way in which the Apennine chamois Rupicapra pyrenaica ornata is described. A distinct subspecies that lives in the mountains of Abruzzo where, miraculously, it had escaped extinction at the beginning of the 20th century. Very little was known about the life of this symbol of Apennine wild nature, perfectly adapted to a world of sheer rock walls and steep slopes, and able to survive both the capriciousness of the mountain climate and ambushes of bears, wolves and eagles...
