To our friends from across the globe,
We are living through one of the most challenging times in modern history.
This is usually the season when the island and coastline come to life, when hotels open their doors for the summer under international flags snapping cheerfully in the breeze, when restaurants set tables on terraces and pergolas for al fresco dinners, when boats cut through the sparkling turquoise waves along the coast.
Today, all is silent.
The steep staircases in Positano, the postcard-perfect Piazzetta in Capri, and the narrow lanes in Sorrento echo with emptiness.
The seasons march on, and spring has exploded with all its exuberant joy. At sunset, the sweet smell of jasmine flowers waft from hidden gardens and the sky, free from smog, is a piercing cobalt blue. The crystalline waters off the coast are teeming with life, dolphins play in the quiet port, and the bay so limpid that the seafloor looks close enough to touch. The towering Faraglioni hover silently, unchanged over the millennia and indifferent to our human suffering.
So many of you were forced to cancel or postpone holidays on Capri and the Amalfi Coast scheduled for the spring, and it’s still impossible to know how the situation will play out this summer. No one can say when we can start to explore the world again, to relax on the beach, to explore new destinations...in short, to live.
What we do know is that nothing will be the same, but perhaps everything will be better. We’ll be able to enjoy simple pleasures like a lemon gelato on a balmy afternoon, the first swim of the summer, an aperitivo in a lively sidewalk café under the stars. We won’t need indulgent extravagances, knowing that the most precious luxury is freedom.
In the meantime, we send our heartfelt best wishes from the safety of our balconies and terraces, along with the warm promise of spring and the hope that we will be able to see you soon.
From all of us here at Caprionline to all of you, wherever you may be, Arrivederci! (Until we meet again!)
