We have reached the Square of the Plebiscit with a couple of important buildings with important-looking doors. Viterbo Municipality has a lovely courtyard with a fountain, guarded by a magnificent set of green doors. I think it was those and the light that made these 20 minutes the highlight of our visit.
Suddenly, around a corner, the never-ending Viterbo opened up with Piazza del Plebiscito which hosts the pinkish Prefettura di Viterbo and the yellowish Viterbo Municipality.
You can freely pass under the arch of the latter and enter its courtyard with the Fontana di Palazzo dei Priori in pretty light with the pretty view. The arch is (not really) guarded by the set of (open) deep green doors which I already showed you last April when I wrote my door poem that made me the featured participant of NaPoWriMo (National Poetry Writing Month) for a day.
When we were done with this square it was almost 5 pm, but Viterbo gave us one more door-rich hour as you will see in the coming Thursdays.
As for now and here, Tuscany went back to orange this Monday, which means that I’m not to leave my municipality again. Frankly, the weather and hurting feet do not really lure me anywhere.
We had been promised snow for Valentine’s but it was only really cold so that I had to search for my gloves which I haven’t used in Italy for several winters.
Nothing compared to snow and -10 degrees C in Texas. So sorry for all who are suffering.
And now, here is last February and the last pre-K daytrip. Make sure you also catch the two photos under the gallery, which my sister sent me just earlier.
And finally, a photo from today that goes well with those above. My sister sent it to me from her day trip to Kostanjevica upon the Krka river in Slovenia, where our great-grandmother worked as a cook. “Just for you,” she writes, “Jesus door”. Thanks, sis, it’s wonderful. Could be just as well somewhere in Italy.
As I was getting ready to post, she sends one more, of this house from the road. ❤ Just what would catch my eye too.
