Un sogno in fondo al mare

Un sogno in fondo al 

mare, libro scritto da Paolo Sandulli

It's not a tale because there are no kings nor queens, neither talking animals nor a final moral. Anyway it's a story about animals and humans, where animals are animals and humans are humans.

The “Torre a Mare” studio is one of thirty-four towers of the Amalfi Coast. Conical on a circular base, it is crowned by "drains", only two of which remain today. The structure is in local limestone and the thickness of the walls is approximately three meters at the basis and about two meters at the upper part. Internally it is composed of two rooms with an overlying dome. A big tank is located at the basement, and there is a stairway to access the upper room and terrace. The tower is identified by some historians as "Torre Assiola" or "Sciola" erected in 1278; others regard to it as "Torre a mare", built in 1558. In the 50's, it experienced some little transformations: in the basement room a small guarding window was enlarged to allow a better view of the sea, and an elegant wooden staircase to access the top floor was also realized; at the top floor a small bathroom was built. Outside a chute and a square terrace in front of the door were obtained to have an easier access. The tower has been Paolo Sandulli art studio for nearly two decades.
