Photographer's Note

Arqu Petrarca (info in italian in Arqu Petrarca Borgo del Poeta)

This arch is the most amazing entrance to the village of Arqu Petrarca, where Francesco Petrarca decided to retire at the end of his life.

"Fuggo la citta' come ergastolo e scelgo di abitare in un solitario piccolo villaggio, in una graziosa casetta, circondata da un oliveto e da una vigna, dove trascorro i giorni pienamente tranquillo, lontano dai tumulti, dai rumori, dalle faccende, leggendo continuamente e scrivendo" (Francesco Petrarca, lettera a Francesco Bruni, 24 maggio 1371)"

This is my first B&W posting, and the reason is in the centre of the shot (yes, there is a car not easy to see in B&W, but really horrible in the color version).
