Capocotta's beach strentches along the Roman coast and is one of the best preserved dunes of the Mediterranean, in Italy. The history of the beach started in the early Seventies, when someone cut out an opening in the fence that guarded the hunting territory belonging to the President of the Republic. It quickly became a meeting place where anyone could practice free nudism. The beach was called “The Hole" in reference to the cuts in the fence, representing the illegal access to the beach.
Since the time of the forbidden beach many years have passed and Capocotta has slowly transformed. But a stretch of beach about 300 meters in length survived for free nudism.
Between these dunes the nudist community who have also remained there is in constant support of this belief: simply that you can be free to expose yourself.
This beach is a place to get in touch with a variety of individuals. Here social rules break in favor of freedom of expression. In this microcosm sexuality has its own language and its own meaning: it can be sold for money, it can be a research of human contact, it can be just sex.
Through our work we have tried to take a look into this community.
