After landing in Nice we drove for around one hour to reach what would be our location for the following three days.
After crossing the border, I felt immediately at home. Finally shooting in my beloved Italy! Hearing speaking my mother language everywhere and tasting the best food of the world! (Allow my Italian heart to talk please) And finally…a team made up of 6 women!! Yes, a women production. If in addition to this you add the fact that 5 out of 6 were blonde (coming from Sweden and Denmark) well…then you will imagine why during our stay in the little village of Olivetta San Michele – 254 inhabitants – our blondy team was the piece of news of the day.
Three days of production, three different editorials and covers for one of the most important Swedish fashion magazines. I really had a great time there and I am very proud of the perfect organization of all the team. In spite of the clouds, the wind and the half rainy day, we could take advantage of the little sun and everything turned out to be very easy, also thanks to my beloved Italian strong and black Espresso, which –once again- literally saved me and helped us to face the cold and the early wake-up calls.
People in villages still live in such an authentic way. So nice, friendly and so willing to help, can you believe that a guy even came to us and gave us ten kakis because he ‘had heard’ that the kaki was one of our favorite fruits? What a gentleman! Soooo Italian 😉
A huge hug from here to all our women team: Sarah, Helen, Sanne, Suzanne and Line. A pleasure working with all of them. And many kisses also to sweet Claudia & family, that for sure, cook the best Spaghetti aglio olio e peperoncino of Olivetta!! 😉
