A little more than 2,000 inhabitants is the smallest town of the Castelli Romani, in the center of the Alban hills and panoramic location on the lake is dominated by the castellated Palazzo Ruspoli.
Featuring picturesque alleys overlooked by craft shops and flower-filled balconies.
It was established in Roman times the worship of the goddess Diana, the domain of the powerful family of the Counts of Tusculum in the Middle Ages, which were replaced by the Frangipane, until, in 1153 Pope Anastasius IV granted the castle to the Cistercian monks of the Abbey of the Three Fountains.
Papal rule, with ups and downs, until 1870, when it was annexed to the Kingdom of Italy.

A very nice composition where you found a good foreground to balance the view of the village, where the small church looks like it is standing on the roofs of the ordinary houses. Very good colours and light.

bella compo la sfera e i ciclamini sono proprio azzeccati contro le facciate di Nemi.
Bella la scala di case che si arrampica fino al campanile.

The round sculpture is trying to frame the scene. The point of view is showing the details and the colours of the buildings. The good luminosity is enhancing the colours. Have a nice day.

A cleverly composed image where various elements in the frame guide the viewer naturally upwards toward the culminating church tower. I like the soft light and pleasant natural tones.

A good view of the town on the hill slopes. From your POV you have captured the gradient of the buildings on the slope very well. The slope ends up nicely with the church tower. Good natural framing by the round figure in the FG. Nice natural colors and excellent light. Thanks for sharing.

Il y a beaucoup d'informations dans cette composition et tout cela à partir d'une boule en ciment et un pot de fleurs.J'ai bien hâte d'en voir plus car je serai à Rome en mai.

You focus on pillar and red flower in pot, good idea to show also the bg, ancient houses and architecture style, I can see a church tower in the bg and a clock, all the best Silvio, see you!

very nice the view of the place with the stone made 'ball' to dominating the area as lead-in the eye on the top of the hill.
The excellent light and colour management enhance the beauty and the quality of the scene.

Interesting view of Nemi, classical village buildings stacked on top of each other, revealing various design and textures, and all in good resolution.

Excellent well compressed view of nice church and building, superb exposing in very good light. Nice photo with many superb details.
Wish you a very nice weekend.

We get almost always nice churches and nice buildings, but here see we the backside, where you found a good foreground to balance the view of the village
You create depth and perspective through your excellent angle.
What a beauty my friend, excellent sharp and clear.
Lovely sight on the towers in background, with nice light and colours.
Nice composition, a lovely presentation. TFS.
Have a nice weekend,
