Captured this shot of Fred, my loving husband and best friend for over 37 years, at the delightful trattoria that overlooks Cortona’s Piazza della Repubblica, the town’s main square that’s surrounded by medieval buildings, including the 13th century Communal Palace. This trattoria was the setting for several scenes in the movie version of “Under the Tuscan Sun”.
