Thursday Doors: Last September 1st in Pitigliano

Today I wish to look back exactly one year and revisit Pitigliano and some of its doors in the splendid company of Crystal and Pedro from Oregon. Where did one year go?

But first this: Today is the first day of school in Slovenia, the first day of the hunting season in Tuscany, and this year the first day of Eurobasket in Germany. Happy September 1st to all who don’t need to go to school, who don’t need to hunt or be hunted, and who won’t need to play against Slovenia.

Today is also Thursday and my plan was to make a selection of my various September doors, as I did with August last week. However, after reviewing the first half of day one I had plenty and could stop.

All these doors were captured on this day last September when I took my visitors from Oregon on our first day trip to show them the wow effect of Pitigliano, “the little Jerusalem” as its Jewish quarter is called. It never fails to impress. You can find Crystal’s post on this day here.

This was also the day when my new old camera, which Crystal gifted me so generously, was tested for the first time. See if you see any change compared to both last week’s posts. I haven’t put it down since.

  1. I love your caption “I wonder what needs those holes to breath…” they do stir the imagination. These are all beautiful doors, Manja. I usually can’t pick a favorite, but I love that little door at the grade level window. I hope your September 1st goes by smooth and easy. As always, thanks for sharing the beauty of your country/countries with Thursday Doors.


  2. I love these! I remember being in England over thirty years ago and being amazed at the history as told through doorways. I love the enduring symbols of an old country. You have some true gems here!


      1. AND from here, plane tickets are the most expensive there than pretty much anywhere. But it has been a lifelong dream of mine to visit your continent (after falling in love with the movie The Man From Snowy River), and New Zealand also, after the LOTR movies. So…it will definitely happen someday. I just need to save my pennies. 🙂

  3. Tuscany at its best with all these doors! I like the longer school vacations in Europe. Here, they already started the schoolyear two weeks earlier! A curious question: what is Italy going to do about heat (oil, gas, etc.) in winter?


  4. Wow. Fantástico! Always a world of wonderment here.

    Forgive I’ve missed so many posts I just couldn’t get my stamina up for more.
    Too hot, too hot, too hot baby. (Kool & The Gang) 😘

    Hope all’s well with you, your Amore and Bestia. Sending you cool vibes.


  5. Your captions are funny, Manja. ‘What needs these holes to breathe?’ Good question!! The spaghetti monster–manners, kind sir, manners! Hello little bestia! I see you there on the side.


  6. Ahh, my friend. It is a delight that I now know what it’s like to hug you and your Amore, and to share the back seat with Bestia. I know what the light looks like when one stands in a Tufa town. I saw a vaguely Mexican man in that shot too!! ha ha ha!! How wonderful is our life that we have had the chance to spend time together. A whole year has passed, but I don’t understand how, since we were only there last month.
