wild canyon “Il Porto” near Positano, Italy. He shared this special place for
many years with the Australian artist and dancer Vali Myers, who first
rediscovered it and fought to restore it to its natural beauty. Gianni'sbook
Il Porto: Life in a Wild Canyon Near Positano (translated by Cheryl Reimold) is available from La Libreria, Positano, Italy (email@example.com).
