Throughout centuries sun, rain, and wind have attacked these walls within the Italian village of Calcata (about 30 miles north of Rome). The town's aged old beauty, unique setting (atop a 150 foot volcanic stump surrounded by dense forest), and unique inhabitants and history, bring film makers, photographers, painters, and tourists from around the world. Fred and I happened upon this gem on our way to another town. We lucked out in that we arrived there when no other visitors were around (very unusual). The whole time I was there I couldn't stop taking pictures. I so fell in love with these beautiful old walls. The Etruscan-like thrones are recent additions and were sculpted out of tufo rock by a local sculptor.

In the Calcata photo essay.

    I love weatherbeaten walls with peeling paint and worn stucco. Nature has been most unkind to them, but they become beautiful in a different way from Mother Nature's abuse. Excellent shot, Deb. One of my favorites.

    I can see how you could come to love this ageless beauty Deb. Looking slightly abandoned, but still with warmth. Nice find.!
