Exploring Sicily with the Heart: Enjoy Barocco through the eyes of Alessandra

In the fascinating Southeast of Sicily, amid the hues of Baroque and the crystal clear waters of the sea, there is a journey that goes beyond mere exploration. It is a journey from the heart, driven by passion and the search for authenticity. Alessandra, a passionate traveler, has fully immersed herself in the soul of this land, bringing with her curiosity and desire for discovery.
For Alessandra, the bond with the sea and Sicily is deep and palpable. “Mine, with the sea, is rather a great love,” she confides, as the saline wind caresses her face. “It is a bond that manifests itself through silences, looks and words, a perfect combination of emotions and sensations.” And when he talks about his homeland, Sicily, his eyes light up with joy and pride. “These places so full of everything….. but, from me, you will feel and see only a load of beauty, of history, of men and women, of feelings full of joy, humanity and love. Because this is my land and this is me!”
And along with the sea, there is the sky, the colors, the scents of my land, Sicily. A deep connection to my roots, laden with beauty, history and humanity. It is precisely this connection that prompted me to choose to explore the places of Enjoy Barocco for this my latest adventure.
Traveling through villages and streets outlined by white stone walls, Alessandra is guided by her curiosity, instinct and attraction to authenticity. Explore old houses, listen to the colorful stories of local elders, and get lost in alleys steeped in history and culture. It is a journey that goes beyond just sightseeing; it is a complete immersion into the soul of this land.
But it is not only culture and history that capture Alessandra’s attention. It is also the breathtaking beauty of the landscapes, the majesty of the sea kissing the coasts, and the Baroque reflected in the architecture and works of art. It is a beauty that goes beyond the mere glance; it is an emotion that is experienced and breathed in every corner of this land.
“My days begin with the golden light of the sun kissing the Sicilian streets; in choosing places to visit, I mainly follow my instincts. I get in the car and drive, letting myself be guided by the wonders my land has to offer. this time my journey took me to Santa Croce Camerina, an enchanting village that captured my heart with its timeless charm. The crystal clear waters, golden sandy beaches and sea breeze of Punta Secca captured me from the first moment, giving me moments of pure joy and gratitude for the beauty of the surrounding nature.” The local culture of Enjoy Barocco ‘s towns and villages is an integral part of daily life, difficult to change and full of traditions passed down from generation to generation. The scent of the sea mingles with that of lemon and elderberry, filling the air with a unique fragrance that speaks of life and tradition. But what really makes this land special is its people, with their warm welcome and vibrant spirit.
“I’ve had the privilege of meeting elders who have told me compelling stories from the past, they can’t wait to talk, talk, talk…… tell and invent! And passionate young people who work tirelessly to preserve and enhance the rich culture of Enjoy Barocco.”
“Traveling is like a homecoming, a recognizing oneself in each place visited. In Sicily, each stop is an encounter with myself, as if I were “called” by the very nature of this generous land. Photography is my favorite form of expression, the medium through which I try to capture the essence of each journey. My images are not meant to communicate messages, but emotions. I want to convey joy, lightness and beauty, reflecting on the wonder in the face of such magnificence. In this journey through the paths of emotion, I approach the creation of visual content by letting spontaneity and sincerity guide me. In each image, I try to tell my travel experience in an authentic and engaging way, inviting viewers to immerse themselves in a world of beauty and wonder, where every detail is a fragment of poetry.”
Through her photographs and videos, Alessandra seeks to capture the soul of Sicily, to convey the authenticity and beauty of the places she visits. His images are an invitation to explore not only the monuments and tourist attractions, but also the emotions and feelings that these places evoke.
His video, an emotional journey, is a testament to his passion and love for this land. And as you watch it, you find yourself traveling with her, discovering the magic and beauty of Enjoy Barocco through her eyes.
