Usually a region is explored by traveling along its roads, but the opportunity to experience it from above provides alternative and fascinating views of its landscapes and features. This book is dedicated to Emilia Romagna and offers a bird"s eye view of a journey from the Apennines to the sea, revealing a land that is varied and full of beauty, with populated areas interspersed with areas of unmatched beauty, in which nature has managed to retain its wildness almost completely unspoilt. Also striking are the views looking down on the towns and cities, a perspective that provides superb and unique insights into the region’s urban landscapes, revealing thousands of secret architectural details that would otherwise be hidden at street level, such as inaccessible gardens enclosed by walls. The aerial views offer the reader different perceptions of space and distances, and an unusual appreciation of the relationships between the region’s elements. For instance, the impact of humanity – at times extremely powerful – will induce readers to reflect on how essential it is to exploit intelligently that which needs to be preserved and protected. However, this book on Emilia Romagna aims mainly to communicate and inspire what the title promises: emotions evoked from photographs taken from the sky.
