I love the light in Italy and its never been so perfectly captured as through Elizabeth Messina’s lens. Here, the boats of Venice, the grand canal, and the famous tower of San Marcos plaza.

But what I love most about Italy is the art… I did my thesis on 14th century art and it has a special place in my heart. Above, one of my favorite artists of the period Simone Martini…

And on a special note, Elizabeth‘s book, The Luminous Portrait came out yesterday, you can get it right here.
