Valditacca (Monchio delle Corti-PR).
Antico portale in pietra di una stalla riadattata a cantina.
La presenza di portali come questi è caratteristica delle zone dell'Appennino centro-settentrionale.Nella zona del Parco Nazionale dell'Appennino Tosco-Emiliano e aree limitrofe è comune che questi siano accompagnati da iscrizioni recanti la data di costruzione o dallo stemma della casata alla quale il palazzo apparteneva.Le frazioni più interessanti da questo punto di vista sono: Valditacca e Pianadetto (Monchio delle Corti-PR), Bosco di Corniglio (Corniglio-PR), Cecciola (Ramiseto-RE), Camporaghena (Comano-MS), Apella, Taponecco e Tavernelle (Licciana Nardi-MS).In alcuni di questi borghi i maestri scalpellini hanno dato vita ad un copioso campionario scultoreo che, sebbene di ispirazione ingenuamente popolare, mostra una varietà ed una ricchezza insolitamente pregevole.

Valditacca (Monchio delle Corti-PR).
Ancient stone portal of a stable readapted to cellar.
The presence of portals like these is characteristic of areas of northern and central Apennine.In the Appennino Tosco-Emiliano National Park and neighbouring areas is common that these are accompanied by entries indicating the date of construction or the coat of arms of the House to which the palace belonged.The most interesting villages in this respect are: Valditacca e Pianadetto (Monchio delle Corti-PR), Bosco di Corniglio (Corniglio-PR), Cecciola (Ramiseto-RE), Camporaghena (Comano-MS), Apella, Taponecco e Tavernelle (Licciana Nardi-MS).In some of these villages the masters stonecutters have formed a copious sculptural swatchbook that, although naively popular, shows a variety and richness unusually beautiful.

This is my favorite photo of your gallery. Could be because I like rustic stuff. This old wooden door looks very pretty. I only wish you would not crop it. Take a photo of the complete door, even the lock is so interesting. Excellent capture of textures. TFS


Ciao Alessio

I like the texture of both the port
on the rocks. Beautiful colors and details!
Sharpness and clarity are perfect.
Lovely composition, excellent presentation.
Very well done,

Have a nice weekend,

You have a very good composition of photo through simple things.
Your notes are also fruitful enable everybody to read.
Thanks for your comment to the Spanish baby of my photo.

This one really caught my eye. It tells me a story. For some reason it gives me a feel that there are patches of green grass around it and children come to play, like hide n seek, wondering what lies inside the rusty lock, and creating some ghost stories surrounding it. Perhaps this imagination is fuelled by my own childhood experiences. I can almost smell the fungus on the old wood.
Great job.

Caught my eye, really like the detail, tones and old, aged door. I would like to have seen the all of the door. I feel cropping out the bottom takes away from this photo. Cheers for the Holiday and Tks for the comments on my photo.
