Carlotta was born in Fregene, a sun-swept village on the Tyrrhenian coast. Being close to Rome, the small seaside town has always been a refuge for Romans, including Federico Fellini (La dolce vita, 1960). Carlotta is still based in Fregene as a creative photographer and writer.
Can you describe Italy in one sentence?
I was born in a country where beauty is everywhere; light, gardens, food, to name a few. My love for that beauty has always inspired me to be and do better. I love the county’s welcoming, romantic and passionate people that share everything. Italy in three sentences;
The sight of the sparkling light reflecting off the sea.
The taste of wine and endless talking.
The real Italian beauty after all is basically only in its simplicity.
What are your favourite places in Italy and why do you like it there?
My favourite places are Tuscany, Tuscia, Puglia and Calabria, all for their secret beaches, rural countryside and genuine people!
