Sunday Italian Style: 1965 Alfa Romeo 2600

In Rosso Alfa, a 1965 Alfa Romeo 2600 Spider Touring finished over a tan leather interior. With only 2,257 Spiders produced between 1961 to 1968, the 2600 spiders are becoming exceedingly rare to come by.

A great car for a Sunday afternoon drive along the Amalfi coast.


Napoli, 11 Gennaio 1817

“Parto. Non dimenticherò né la via Toledo né tutti gli altri quartieri di Napoli; ai miei occhi è, senza nessun paragone, la città più bella dell’universo”.

Neapolitan Beauties (1885)

Bonhams says:

Neapolitan Beauties is ‘a striking depiction of two elegantly dressed ladies posed with their dog on the promenade; the flawlessly painted surface, devoid of any evidence of the artist’s brush, perfectly displays the subject’s porcelain skin and beauty. All attention is focused on the elegant subjects and the omission of a narrative focuses the viewers attention on the beauties within a frieze-like arrangement leading the viewer’s eye from one to the other’.

The painting is by Vittorio Matteo Corcos (Italian, 1859-1933), known for ‘winsome and finely dressed young men and women, in moments of repose and recreation’.
