Photographer's Note

Living in Italy sometimes you hate bad organization, burocracy, road trafic and so on, but if you go a little bit outside, in the country or in little villages you can find some marvellous places, rich of history, culture, art and fantastic food and few people visiting them.
These are Italian Pearls.
San Leo (PS) is an example. It is a small village near the Riviera Adriatica (Rimini and Riccione).
Founded in IV sec AC, become important in the X-XII century, when it was visited by S. Francis of Assisi and Dante Alighieri.
In the XVII century it was the place where the Count of Cagliostro, a magic and strange alchimist (friend of Goethe, Schiller and the Cardinal of Rohan) was life imprisoned in the lugubrious dungeons of the inaccessible San Leo Fortress.
In this photo, shot at 10.30 PM, this village was showing a little of its "magic" and peaceful atmosphere.
