Il Dolce Far Niente is a gorgeous, photographic ode to the magic of southern coastal Italy in the summer by renowned travel, fashion, and lifestyle photographer Lucy Laucht.

Throughout these pages, the spirit of summer will come shining through-shimmering blue seas, long, summer afternoons walking on the beach, those fearless jumpers diving off cliffs into the sea. There’s a special essence to summer in South Italy-the pleasure of living simply. Lazing on the beach, perching on the rocks overlooking the sea, relishing moments of escape and calm.

Organized by place, each destination is its own chapter: Naples, The Aeolian Islands, Ischia, The Amalfi Coast + Capri, Sicily, Puglia, and Pantelleria. Framing each chapter is a rule that embodies the sense of place such as Napoli’s “Find Peace in Chaos”-follow these rules in your own life, and bring a bit of the magic of an Italian summer home. Brimming with photos, Il Dolce Far Niente is for anyone who loves Italy.
