Thursday Doors, March 16 2017

Today’s special: the second part of ancient Pitigliano doors.

You never know where Thursday Doors may lead: The first part of Pitigliano doors, which is here, inspired my Russian friend raynotbradbury to write a short play. And she promises several more, all based on my doors. Imagine if behind one of those really lived a guy named Romeo…

Last time I promised to post a photo from the town from afar which usually stirs the most sighs from first-time visitors. I have posted it often but some of you only visit my blog when there are doors, so this one is for you:

In other news, today celebrates our last year’s visitor featured below. The first half of the photos were taken last April when he was here, then there is father in a shop, and then follow some images from my last visit with uncle when we discovered a scenic route around the town (a bit wobbly in places) and caves dug in the tuff, rock formed from volcanic ash out of which the entire town is built, that make an excellent storage space.

And of course, throughout there are doors.

  5. Beautiful photos, Manja. We saw lots of cave houses in Spain, some of them still lived in. Nice and cool in hot weather.

    Wonderful! I love that pale gray set under the stairs, with its airy arc, and of course, a bit of green growing there at the top 🙂

    1. Oh, Vanessa, I know. Overdoorification is real and I have it. Italy is to blame! 😀

      4. Yes, don’t ask. Didn’t try it, sounds horrible: “Salamander Brandy infuses traditional Brandy with the venom salamanders use to defend themselves. It is said to produce a high akin to LSD and Ecstasy combined.”

  17. Is this the time for me to Sigh! What a great collection this week, Manja! I’ve seen cave houses and restaurants in Spain and on the island of Santorini, Greece; looks like many European communities built caverns to live in.

    You always offer up great doors, but there is one in particular today that is soooo different. I think it’s the 7th photo in with the door and window built into the archway. The entire wall of this building is attractive, but the curvature of the door and window to fit in the arch is (in my opinion) stunning!!

    1. Oh, thank you for detailed viewing, Joanne! Indeed it’s a rare sight.
