Chiara and Lorenzo is a young couple who will be married in October in Rome, in the beautiful Villa Aurelia, but to meet them I had to take a plane and fly to Zurich. That’s where they live, work, walk, love each other. It is the place of their love story, of their acquaintance; a foreign city that became familiar, perhaps also because it witnessed their union. They wanted to recall their moments, their meetings, their “places,” so nothing better than to let the pictures speak for themselves.
Zurich is an elegant, very beautiful city that the ancient-modern, progress-tradition dualism enriches with charm. Open to transformation and contamination, sensitive to the respect and preservation of its historical cultural heritage, multiethnic and diverse enough to be called the Helvetic London, it is a true metropolis that has earned a place among the world’s ten most livable cities. Very rich in cultural offerings, museums, galleries, bookstores, art cafes, one for all the very famous Cabaret Voltaire, if it were not for the excessively high standard of living, it would truly be one of the ideal places to live. It is a city that caters to a wide range of needs and, as they say, has something for everyone.
From nature lovers to art and literature enthusiasts, from shopaholics to nightlife addicts, Zurich is able to accommodate in its heterogeneity anyone who wants to live their passions and enjoy them in a lively and stimulating atmosphere, without ever being chaotic, perhaps because it is mitigated by the well-known Swiss character, which protects its quiet and tranquility. In this city Chiara and Lorenzo have found their places of the heart, the café where perhaps they will have met for coffee who knows how many times, the bridge they will have crossed to meet each other, the river that will have enchanted them each time with its charm, the streetcars that they will have rushed or waited, but only a few moments, we are in Switzerland. City in which to fall in love Zurich? Chiara and Lorenzo would answer….city to fall in love in.
What would be the best fate for photographs like these? To end up in an album.
