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.

    • 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?
