Island People – Capri – Nello Iaccarino, Christina Rookmaaker, Camilla Formisano

I’ve never been in Capri, scared by its stylish aura. But then… then I’m finding out loads of interesting guys, although so sociologically different from those I found in, say, Ustica or the Aeolian Islands.

Caprionline (https://www.caprionline.it), one of the first companies in Italy specialized in creating websites, is indeed based in Capri.
Nello, authentically Caprese (from Capri), founded it twenty years ago with a friend. Before, he used to be lifeguard, ice cream maker and keyboard player in a dark music band.
Then Christina and Camilla joined. As for Christina, some think she’s Indian, some Thai, some even Dutch. Yet despite the name and the exotic appearance, Christina is an (almost) authentic Caprese who decided to work and start a family in Capri.
Camilla, born and raised in Sorrento, like all “mainland” people always saw Capri as a distant and remote island – despite the hydrofoil only takes 20 minutes. After having become an adoptive Caprese, she returned to live on the mainland and travels every day to reach the office.

Despite the preconceptions, they tell me Capri is “a place that allows Bambi to grow up free surrounded by nature, sea, and woods”! We’ll talk about it in early may…

The project is conceived and realized by me, Lucio Bellomo, born in 1983 in Palermo, Sicily. Which is also Italy ;-) I am (not proud of being) an engineer in electronics. After the PhD I worked as a physical oceanographer in France, doing research on the physical phenomena that rule the oceans. I took part in several long international oceanographic cruises onboard research vessels. Eager for an even tighter contact with the sea, I left the University and today I work as a diving instructor, both SCUBA and freediving, in small Mediterranean islands and tropical seas. In my spare time I fancy sailing: I began in the Mediterranean Sea and am continuing in the Atlantic Ocean.
