Thursday Doors, 12/3/20: Montecalvello, part 2

With great news and a light heart I post the second part of the doors from Montecalvello, a little town that you will never find.

It was the last normal day before everything started, February 22nd 2020. I met fellow blogger Flavia at the gate to this town in northern Lazio and we burst into laughter, as described in Part 1. It was just so random.

After this town we went to nearby Viterbo, from where more doors will be a-coming, and the next day, the next day the Venice Carnival was cancelled and nothing was ever the same again.

What about the good news? Well, amore finally got sent home from work today for the duration of the lock-down. No more trains for at least two weeks. Hurrah! As if the virus knew what a pain it is to wake up at 4.15 am and how nice it is to have him home.

Be well, happy, healthy and safe! It will pass.

  1. Oh, it is with such relief that I am happy Amore is to stay at home. We have had quite a lot of events cancelled here in my town. Cher even cancelled her concert until September! Universities are closed but grammar schools remain open…… Be careful out there, Manja.

  2. All these photos have an abandoned feel to them – which seems so appropriate given the state of affairs right now in Italy and around the world.

    I feel we are reaching the massive hysteria part of the program. I do hope this thing burns out soon. The constant doom-and-gloom is starting to get to me.

    Glad to hear that you and Amore continue to be well!

      1. You have the love the Italians! They certainly have a zest for life ❤️

        Our province and city have already started to shut down. Yesterday was very sobering as news release after news release came out of closures, cancellations, and suspensions. I admit I was seriously rattled even though very little of it affects me directly.

        Thank goodness I have plenty of home projects to do … and the internet 😊

  3. I think that so far it has been our craziest stop! We always select very uncommon location but Montecalvello is undoubtedly the winner of our crazy set!

    By the way, I love your close up pictures!

    Take care my dear ❤️💪

    1. Ahh, Fabrizio, look at you, speaking Italian to me. That’s the first. You may really be Italian after all! 😉 Better to be home, I’m sure. Who knows who is telling the truth any more. I see that UK has no other measures at all yet (you’re there, right?). Whereas in Italy, we sing. But you knew that.

  4. Wow you two really hit the door jackpot in finding this place. so much aged, weathered, textured beauty…bravo!
    Glad to hear you get to hunker down together now to wait out this craziness. Day by day and step by step, we’re going gradually going into deeper lock down here too. Today our provincial government is strongly urging everyone over 70 and those with compromised systems like mine to self-isolate. And of course the panic buying is in full swing. Stay safe, stay sane, be well, and hopefully you have lots of doors in your archives 😉

    1. Hey, Norm, it’s for the best to stay put and relax. Luckily we can do it, and hopefully Honey can stay with you home too. Doors have this great characteristic: they stay put too and wait for us when we can go out again. This place and this day was the last of the normal ones and will be cherished as such. There will be more. All good to both of you!

  5. So much beauty! I did love the bright red sweater, but not as much as I loved the green growing through the paver stones under her feet. How beautiful the details are!
    I am very glad your amore will be home safe for a few weeks. My husband started working from home today, and I think I will follow suit next week.

Happy to learn the first thing on your mind.
