Agricultural center of the Abruzzi Apennine (1684 inhab.) Stands on a pleasant hill that rises on the left bank of the river Vibrata northeast of Teramo, which is 30 Km. Approximately. The name of the town derives from the name of the fertility goddess Turan and truly reflects the hard work and dynamism of Toranesi, while the word "New" was added in 1864 following a royal decree of Vittorio Emanuele II. In the Middle Ages it was certainly a strong castle situated on the border between the Papal States and the Kingdom of Naples. In 1496, during the so-called "war of plaster" of Charles VIII was razed to the ground, but thanks to the diligence and ingenuity of its inhabitants rebuilt "better than ere." Located on a hill, 241 meters above sea level, offers one of the most charming and picturesque landscapes of the province, it is surrounded by valleys and hills dotted with charming farmhouses and lush vineyards. It is known for the cultivation of grapes and the production of wine, famous since ancient times so that, according to Pliny, Hannibal, a veteran of the Battle of Lake Trasimeno, used it to cure his sick horses of scabies. The production of wine (DOC Montepulciano, Trebbiano DOC,,. Controguerra DOC and DOCG hills Teramane) is so important, that Torano Nuovo was called the "Capital of the Montepulciano d'Abruzzo". The extensive menu of local products is complemented by Toranesi sausages and hams of the five seasons from spelled, from cheese and honey. For its typical food and wine is certainly worth the title of "country of taste."

Such beautiful golden light, and combined with the excellent blue of the sky beyond. It was a really excellent idea to frame this whole scene by using the arch way like this, it frames the scene and also adds perfect depth to your shot. Another one of those scenes that I would love to just climb inside and go exploring inside :)
Thanks as always

This is a very successful night capture with excellent light management. The golden colours are very nice, especially next to the blue sky. Good use of the arch to frame the view down the street.

I like the way you have framed the picture with the arch.
A lovely street scene with beautiful colours that stand out in the night sky.

gli archi sono tutti tuoi e fai bene, perché come li usi tu non li usa nessuno.
Bella luce calda in questa ora blu, il centro storico animato dalle persone è in pieno clima estivo.

Nice chosen the POV through the alley, towards the lit piazza.
The campanile is attractive element on the scene, and people sit in the outdoor cafe' gave life to the scene.

a southern light, a southern atmosphere and southern temperatures, with a good lighting of the foreground which must have been the biggest problem.

la vista attravrso il vicolo e l' arco e' bella e gradevole, hai fatto una composizione grafica ed equilibrata per presentare una parte caratteristica della cittadina. I dettagli sono chiari ed attraenti, la profondita' invitante e si ha voglia di avvicinare alla piazza. I colori sono belli, atmospferici e gratificanti. Il gioco della luce e' magico. Complimenti e grazie!
Tanti saluti e buona serata,
