PPAC: Sant’Angelo 5

I’m so glad to see all the support for this series and the joy it brings. And it is not over yet.

The series started with this post and today it’s already part five of fix.

In this part: plenty of fun and beauty and known and unknown characters, including an encounter with a lady on the balcony. I motioned to her if I can include her in the photo, and she smiled the proudest of smiles and said: “Isn’t it beautiful?”

Yes, yes, it is, everything: your foxes, one and the other, the band of musicians with my soulmate dog, a couple of Don Quixotes, but most of all the girl in the featured photo. She made it hard to leave.

I must point out something that I. J. warned me about. There are a lot of towns called Sant’Angelo in Italy. The full name of this town is Sant’Angelo di Roccalvecce in the province of Viterbo north of Rome. There it is, in my Wordless Wednesday photo this week, the neighbouring town Roccalvecce as seen from here.

And now enjoy it while we still can. Next week it’s goodbye to fairy-tales.

A Slovenian in Italy for love. Blogger, photographer, translator and would-be writer who would be a writer if she wrote. Plus reluctant but emerging poet. Beware.

  1. It just gets better and better. I think the teapot is from a Disney version of a fairy tale–Beauty and the Beast perhaps? My daughter would know.
    And Mary Oliver–she knows, always. (K)

  2. The Musicians of Bremen–I had the Little Golden Book of that story. The proud lady on the balcony–I wonder if she watched the artists while they worked. So much to see, Manja!

  3. Fantastic wall murals! Love the Teapot and Clock from Beauty & the Beast.
    I’m curious. Do you know, do the homeowners hire artists to paint the outside of their homes? I wouldn’t imagine you could just walk through a town and randomly paint bare walls.

    1. Thank you, Aimer! I haven’t read much about it but this seems to be a joint and preplanned initiative of this community. Nothing random going on. 🙂 And also – not over yet! More murals will be added. I’ll return after a while and investigate.

    1. Thank you, Denny. Yes, all these murals (and those in four previous posts in this series) are from the same town, Sant’Angelo di Roccalvecce. They decided to showcase the fairy-tales. I don’t know much about the artists. In the post you can find the link to the first post in the series. There will be one more.

  4. I love street art and this is exceptional. The Bremen Street Musicians was one of my favourite tales as a child. I featured them in a book I wrote. Thanks so much for sharing

    1. Another world is right, Randall. Thank you. Another thing that I didn’t mention is that all of these works (I trust) have been painted by women artists. I don’t like to separate people into anything, but I still find it poignant. Nursing, caring, nurturing energy reigns there and you can feel it.
