This white cotton kaftan dress by "Antica Sartoria" comes from the magical coasts of Positano, in the South of Italy, where the sartorial tradition of making laces and working cotton is anchent and strong.

This could be the dress of a Greek bohemian goddess, who enjoys the sun, drinks good wine and swim in the sea.

Here I wear it in a more mystic location, the Saint Peter Church in Tuscania: it's been the location of so many movies. Just to name some: Otello (O.Welles, 1952), Uccellacci Uccellini (P.Pasolini, 1966), Romeo e Giulietta (Zeffirelli, 1968), Nostalghia (A.Tarkovskij, 1983), Lady Hawke (R.Donner, 1985)
