Since then, the Italian town has kept up the tradition and continues to paint its houses in a huge variety of different shades.
Lumi Toma, a professional photographer, was blown away by the multicoloured island as soon as she set foot on shore.
The 36-year-old said: 'With the very first steps on the island I immediately felt a burst of positive energy

'Instantaneously I felt a hunger to see more, so I started walking at a fast pace along the beautiful, narrow streets and channels.

She said: 'The houses follow a special colour pattern, based on a specific system that has been in place since the village was founding.
'If you live on the island, and wish to paint your house, you must send a request to the government, which responds by making a note of the colours permitted for that specific lot of houses.'
