Photographer's Note

Schloss Runkelstein (or Castel Roncolo) lies a few kilometres north of Bolzano in northern Italy. It was built in 1237 and has many well preserved frescoes from the 1300s. This view shows an old window in the castle wall, looking out to a medieval tower known as Torre Druso. Layers of paint reflect the long history of the castle. At least three layers are seen here: the red at the bottom, the patterned red and white in the middle and the pale green layer at the top.
