Pictures of Pitigliano, Italy

While looking through Paolo’s collection of photos of Pitigliano, I came across one showing why sunset photos of Pitigliano are so beautiful. It’s all about the Tuff! Tuff rock is formed from volcanic ash that has cooled and compacted into solid rock. Soft enough to carve, and solid enough to construct it has a natural yellowish glow and a porous surface. Perfect for reflecting the setting sun during magic hour.

If you take a closer look at the first or last Picture of Pitigliano you can see some of the caves Etruscans once called home. See them? Towards the bottom of the city at the ridgeline? This is life as it really is in Italy. Old world is juxtaposed with the new. Italy respects age and embraces patina. Moss grows where it grows. It’s not power washed away. Soft textures glint golden at sunset. Pitigliano is just far enough off the beaten path in Tuscany that it remains a bit of a hidden gem. Yet another reason photographers love Pitigliano, Italy.

    1. Thank you Maggie! More coming up. Going to see how folks like this format. Italy is endlessly beautiful and it’s such a joy to live and explore here, I’m hoping shorter posts are more fun for my friends here on ALOR. Have you tried long vs short posts on your blog and found a difference over time?

      1. When we travel the posts tend to be longer otherwise we get so far behind. When we’re home I try to make them shorter, but this next one will be long again. I did get one complaint about a long post, but otherwise I don’t see much difference. My family complains that there are too many! but I only post once a week. It’s difficult to tell since views are increasing but so are our followers. Let me know what you find.

        1. I’m so sorry. My family is back in America and it’s mentally challenging to wrap my brain around what happening right now. I’ve lived away from my parents for 20 years and returned frequently for holidays and unexpected surprise trips but right now it’s scary even with dual citizenship. I hope for everyone’s sake that travel can feel safe again soon. I hope these Italy Pic of the day posts feel like a quick chance to get away during the everyday.

          1. Oh yes.. I am trying to be positive as much as possible.. M thankful that just before the lockdown happened, my parents came to my place.. So its a blessing in disguise to have them here from the past 6 months…
