Caravaggesque Autumnal Table

I absolutely love this season! 
Beautiful shades of red and orange colour the nature, and you feel a sense of warmth and benevolence around you.
A luxury tablescape is perfect for celebrating so much grace, right? 

I had in my mind this idea of ​​a Caravaggesque Autumn and a picturesque scene, made of light and shadow, enlivened by bright and vibrant colors and enriched by simple and precious details.

So, I talked about this project with my friend Sergio, who is a creative soul and, above all, an expert photographer. The first thing he did was to choose the right film for catching the type of light and to define all those techincal precautions for turning an old table and empty wall into a true set. 
He was so excited that, at the end, I got passionate about all those purely practical things that normally are very boring for me!

Anastasia from Kuts Flowers was able to interpret my vision magnificently, looking at the 17th century still life paintings. I love the fact that she picked up the greenery - mint, berries, pears! - in the countryside surrounding Ravello and that included it in the centerpiece. This greatly elevated the design, giving a touch of uniqueness and local flavor. 

Finally Karyna handcrafted some very refined place cards with a calligraphy with an elegant and dramatic look. I particularly appreciated the choice of colors: I think that the gold of the font really brings out the texture of the paper, which was made by hand in the ancient paper mill in Amalfi.

Working together was very rewarding and enjoyable because a deep connection and a great harmony created inside the team in a very short time. At the end of the shooting we toasted the beautiful atmosphere of authenticity and friendship and tasted the sweetes that our host had prepared for us. 

We spent many hours chatting as people who have always known each other, yet it was only our second meeting!
