Wooden door in Montepulciano, Italy.

Moments Captured Abroad: Italian Passageways

Doorways are a thing of beauty and symbolism. The color, cut of wood, and hardware all contribute to my impulse to snap a photo of them every chance I get. I also find passageways to be a curious, positive metaphor; you never know what’s behind the door until you open it. As you scroll through my collection of Italian-born doors, find which one you’d most likely push open.

This passageway is a bittersweet one.  With faded and rotten color, I can still see the beauty in this Venetian door.  The metalwork, surrounding brick, and lapping water are all beautiful elements.
