The book joins the series of watercolour books published by Editions du Pacifique

The illustrator Fabrice Moireau spent over two months travelling all over Corsica. Enchanted by the island, over 250 paintings resulted from his forays to villages perched on cliffs, from fishermen’s ports, amidst the maquis in the company of wild boars, on rocks close to cascades or in towns scattered over the varied region.
Moireau set up his easel throughout the Mediterranean island, from Haute Corse (Cape-Corse, Erbalunga, Bastia, the Balagne, Agriates, Casinca) to the Eastern plains (Cervione, Aléria) towards Southern Corsica (Ajaccio, Piana, Porto, Partinello, Cuccuruzzu, Porto Vecchio, Bonifacio) and then reluctantly had to select about 180 watercolours to illustrate the book.

Fabrice Moireau, born in 1962, graduated from the Ecole Nationale Supèrieure des Arts appliqués et des métiers d’Art. A passionate traveller, Moireau never fails to bring back sketchs and watercolours in note-books bearing witness to his cultural and artistic interests in architecture, gardens and plants. He has illustrated many travel journals together with various authors.

The Author

The author Belinda Cannone, daughter of a Sicilian father and a Corsican mother, taught at the University of Corse-Pascal-Paoli in Corte for nine years.
Novelist and essayist she has published many books including ‘Narrations de la vie intérieure’ PUF, 2001 or ‘Ecrire en Corse’ together with Jacques Fusina, Klincksieck, 2010.

Cannone confessed (a literal translation by the writer): “The shores and islands of the Mediterranean nourished my imagination as a child. My father comes from a Sicilian family and my mother is Corsican and now lives on the island. I was born in Tunisia and grew up in Marseille. Most probably it is this multiplicity of residences which is at the origin of my impression of not having any real homeland…perhaps it has to do with the sea around whose shores my life took place.” Cannone went on to say that she discovered Corsica relatively late but then was fascinated by the different facets of life on the island.
