On my wanderings in Florence the other day I found myself in a back street called Via del Inferno, where I found a wonderful old wooden door.
I have no idea how old it is, or what the building was originally. It is now the doorway to a garage, which offers parking. You would really need to know it was there, because finding it would be a challenge.
I’m sure it has been a doorway to many different things in its life. It must have had lots of new locks and fittings over the years.
It has clearly had lots of coats of paint…in many different colours. I hope nobody scrapes the layers off and gives it a shiny new coat.
Wandering the back streets in any Italian city is a good thing to do.
