A Snapshot From / Italy

When one door closes…


Chiusa una porta si apre un portone

When one door closes a bigger one opens

 Daughter and I in front of Chiesa di Santa Maria Assunta in Monteriggioni (love this church!)

If you love taking pictures of doors as much as I do, you will enjoy the work of photographer Andre Vicente Goncalves — stunning collages of doors (and windows!) from around the world. And here’s a dual-language post featuring more beautiful doors of Italy by my Italian teacher. Buon divertimento – have fun!

I invite you to sign my guestbook, and be sure to like my Facebook page, where I share often about Italy! This post first ran on Prayers and Piazzas.

  1. Santa Maria Assunta is one of my favorites also. Love the painting of the Madonna of the Rosary that is in there. I have one of the wooden plaques they are now offering of it in my living room. 🙂
