Islands are ships constantly at anchor“, wrote Truman Capote when landing in Forio in 1949. “Setting foot on an island is like getting on a boarding bridge: you are taken by the same sense of magical suspension, it seems that nothing bad nor vulgar can happen to you“. Staying at the Hotel Mezzatorre is like remaining suspended in an inert state of apparent calm. Magical and unforgettable feeling.
