The ‘Fifties were Capri’s golden age.  One could say that this period of vitality, joie de vivre and love for excess  which was to become known in Italy as “la dolce vita” and  marked an unforgettable epoch in the history of our country was born much earlier in this small island – in fact during the years immediately after the end of the Second World War.  The conflict had just ended,  the world was still licking its wounds, half of Italy was reduced to rubble and already the avant-garde of  pleasure-seekers crowded Capri, anxious to forget the horrors of war and eager to numb themselves with amusement, without a thought for differences of age, sex, money or politics. This book reconstructs an unrepeatable period through the testimonies of the people who lived it, the newspaper chronicles, the archival documents, the memories and photos of the time.
