A winter walk around Vergemoli

Yesterday morning started off very well with a beautiful view over Vergemoli from Casa Debbio. The early morning mist hovered above the village of Trasillico.

The mist cleared to reveal a beautiful day.

…time to go for a walk through the village.

I pass this little waterfall on the way to the village. It runs all year.

There is still some snow lying around, and the puddles are still frozen.

In winter, when the trees are bare, you can see our house from the path.

The village of Vergemoli looks wonderful at any time of the year, and the views are spectacular.

I love the old doorways in the village. The first one belongs to the Teatrino Silvio Pellico. I would love to see inside, or better still, see a performance there.

The next one is a favourite.

But I love the next one too.

There is an outdoor theatre in Vergemoli.

This wonderful old tree will provide shade for the stage in summer.

A very well fed cat presented herself to me and made sure I saw all her best angles.

 

This morning I awoke to light snow and mist.

I’m glad I walked through the village yesterday.

  1. Do they perform at the outdoor space? That would be a great place for a kids festival… Hmmmm

  3. I never knew there was a little theatre in Vergemoli – many thanks for pointing it out to me. Couldn’t find any shows advertised for it at the moment – if I do I’ll let you know.

    • I spotted the sign over the door just yesterday. I have walked past this closed door many times, but haven’t looked up before. I will ask around in the village about the theatre.

  4. Such an idyllic setting! Little wonder some residents would be reluctant to leave their homes with stunning views to look at every day. Is here a chance for you to see an outdoor drama performance on a balmy Summer night?
    even though there is snow, mist and cold, you instill a sense of community through your pictures, Deb – I can imagine the villagers sitting on those stone steps and enjoying the play under shady trees. it would be good to take a photo of the same place in the different seasons.

  5. I wonder if those are the same mountains I am seeing but from a different angle from here in Forte? Either way they’re stunning 🙂
