Living with the Past
Simply wonderful public space. It's in a tiny town - Alvito - in the mountains south of Rome.
I love so many things here. This picture could serve as an index for many of the topics I want to explore: Doors, both the grand and the weird. Naked remodels. Laundry. Roof gardens. Windows. Texture. Appreciating the old and embracing the new.
How, oh how, - and why, oh why - is that new rectangular door cut into what appears to be the base of a three-story stone wall?
