The old rectory, Italian style

Four degrees at 8am, and a shockingly wonderful 16 degrees with bright sunshine at the height of the day.



Casa Parrochiale, Cannobio


Today's picture was chosen by AJ (the child who wakes me up at 4:30am because he still wants someone to blow his nose).
The bell-tower on this beautiful building in the heart of Cannobio always reminds me of one of the southern Californian missions.

You know I'm just going to write "I love this," don't you? :)

Great photo - and great choice AJ... it looks nearly Mexican - as if it should be in an old spaghetti Western film!

Chairman Bill said...

Is it a rectory?

CathM said...

Ahhhhhhh – postcard perfect! Delightful!

Brenda said...

It does! It reminds me of one of California's missions. But not just So Cal, Northern Cal has beautiful missions too :)

Hi Louise!
Have you heard of a book called The Collection of Sicilian Folk and Fairy tales of Giuseppe Pitre? It looks wonderful and will be available where I live in July. It looks like it costs about $700 right now for the original translation?!...I'll have to wait until it comes out in paperback! Mr. Pitre was a doctor who wrote down folktales of his patients.

Thanks all for your wonderful comments once again. The more I look at my surroundings, the more I find beautiful things to photograph!

@ Chairman Bill : Yes, I guess it's the equivalent. The Casa Parriochiale is where the priest responsible for the parish (including S. Gottardo here in Carmine) lives and has his offices.

@Loren : No I haven't heard of this one. I have Calvino's collection of Italian folk tales, which is delightful. But the one you mention sounds fascinating - I'll look it up.

Lovely light at this time of year. Better than London gloom.

I, too, am envious of your blue sky and sun.
