The Lure of an Island
This is the most distant, the wildest, and the oldest of the Aeolian Islands, born as a marine volcano, a million years ago. The landscape is harsh, rough, angular. Here, there are no big hotels and no special attractions. A few scattered clifftop houses, lost among the vegetation, in a wilderness of volcanic rock. This is not an island for everyone but it seems that once you have set foot on it you might not want to leave. For Marina, Monica, Giovanni and Francesco it’s a bit like the island of Peter Pan. One day they decided to leave everything behind to be closer to nature, fleeing the chaos of the city to get back to essential values. They chose Filicudi. Perhaps we all have a dream island waiting for us somewhere.
