Many of you will remember this town with fairy-tale murals from my recent public art series. And if you don’t, this is an invitation. There are some doors that I’ve got saved.
This is a small but surprisingly vibrant town in Lazio north of Rome between Viterbo and Orvieto.
As I was choosing which photos of murals to post, I paid special attention to the doors – as I do – and saved several in a special folder. Here they are now. Most of these haven’t been posted yet.
There are six parts in this series, posted for PPAC, Photographing Public Art Challenge, run by Cee – who is hosting the next one tomorrow – and Marsha.
If you haven’t seen any posts from here yet and wish to see more murals, and they are quite wonderful, here is post #1 and here post #6 with the list of all the fairy-tales depicted on the walls of Sant’Angelo.
The initiative to create a fairy-tale town started in 2017 with the first 12 murals. They have crossed number 40 by now and new ones are being added all the time. But frankly, the doors are quite fascinating even on their own.
I was here at the end of September for the first time with my uncle and bestia and was only sorry (for the first time) that I didn’t have a bunch of kids. Welcome!
This day in my blogging history
2015: Patriotism is a pernicious, psychopathic form of idiocy.
—George Bernard Shaw
For all the hands
little and big
that ran out of time.
For the fingers
that pressed all the right buttons
and wrapped around
the loved ones
when the tune started,
or got wrapped around
the little one
and the music was over.
For the times
that got out of hand.
