Arrivederci Naples! A Few Final Views, and Off to Palermo

Today: off from Naples to Palermo to meet good friend and fellow trouble maker Evan Michelson--star of TV's "Oddities" and Morbid Anatomy Library scholar in residence--where we will commence a three-week trip through Italy collecting images and information for our book project investigating "the history of Western culture as revealed through the preservation and display of the human corpse." 

Evan and I plan to post regularly here about the amazing things we encounter, so stay tuned for that.

In the meantime, a few final images from my beloved Naples, "the most macabre of cities... [where] the dead are played with ... like big dolls..." (The Necrophiliac, Gabrielle Wittkop)

You can also find out more about our project here.
