When I was a boy in this, which is one of the most popular and characteristic streets of Spoleto, one could hear the noise of the city, the mothers who lured the children, the blacksmith's hammer on nearby Monterone, the shouting of children at play, the gossip of housewives sitting outside the door.
Now all is silence, peace, but there is regret, for people like me who has lived, in a lively and animated, remains the regret of the old wineries, snacks of cheese and sausage bathed by the new wine, this is a Spoleto that now lives only in the memories of old men like me.
But it's nice today too my city, it's nice to get lost in its narrow streets, its squares, wander through the medieval houses with walls of burnt flint from the time, which to me still echo the voices of the past, tourists have a dip in a world of peace and silence

A poignant story to accompany this pleasant composition. There are many towns like this in France where the atmosphere has changed so much in the last forty years, often driven by the need to find work in the big town and eventually leading to the disappearance of local businesses and another way of life. Fine capture of this empty street with lovely light and colours.

anche stasera hai deciso di giocare in casa tra le stradine poco conosciute della tua città.
Un altro centro arricchito da contrasto e colori naturali e nello stesso tempo assai delicati.
Ciao e buon fine settimana

per essere la via dei fiori, non è molto fiorita, ma sicuramente è un angolo della città poco conosciuto e fuori dal giro turistico, proprio per questo è interessante e più intimo.
Bella sequenza di archi e bella profondità.

colori insoliti, molto delicati che creano una composizione elegante e dolce. Mi piace!
Bravo come sempre!

Ciao Car Silvio,
Your memories are real, full of life and experiences.
No wonder you look on these streets with nostalgia.
I'm sure many of us can recall streets full of children, gossiping mums and interesting smells. Time moves on, things change ... not always for the better.
However, this street, quiet as it maybe, is captured with wonderful textural details and with an excellent guide. I can almost hear the memories!
Have a great w/e,

une belle profondeur d'image, pour cette jolie ruelle. Une belle mise en valeur de ce site typique des villages méditerranéens.
Bonne journée à toi Silvio.

A touching story, so true for many small towns and villages where the young leave, often for lack of opportunities. What remains is the faint echo of a time long gone by and the odd stray tourist.
It is a pleasing scene here, that invites to take a stroll amongst the narrow lanes in Spoleto.
have a great day

Moving way to present and remember a street of your city, life has changed and everybody want to live in a city, does not matter in a cheap, small appartament
Anyway, nice to visit the street with well preserved achitecture and good deepness capture

That's a fantastic image of delightful old buildings that you have captured its character very well from a good angle with excellent masonry detail. The alleyway invites to take a peek deep down the alley filled by some great colours, good clarity and contrast. Such a lovely image from 'yesteryears' and tx to your infor notes, Congrats

The length of the street is giving depth and perspective to the composition. The point of view is showing the details and the colors of the buildings. It is clear and precise. Have a nice day.

this narrow street is very pretty and without any people walking about it seems to be quiet and peaceful. The POV you chose sets it at the good angle and with the light managed so well one can see all the details of the walls and pavement very well.
Good framing and natural colors, very nicely balanced sharpness.
Thanks for sharing
