Meet Vito – a Ponte person

Vito

Vito was born at Ponte a Serraglio and grew up here. Years ago he visited Scotland, met an Irish girl, married her and stayed in Scotland where he ran 3 restaurants. He comes home twice a year and we met him the other day at Il Monaco where he entertained us with his tales of earlier times Bagni di Lucca. Isn’t he a handsome devil?

  5. I don’t know about handsome, being a mere male, but he certainly looks as if he has a deal of wisdom and kindness – the latter, I feel, being the most important thing of all in the end.
