Calvi of Umbria, the ancient Carbium, is also called "the happy port of Umbria." Perched on a rocky outcrop between green hills sloping down towards the Tiber, close to Mount San Pancrazio, stands 410 meters above sea level surrounded by vineyards and olive trees.
Distance from Otricoli only 9 km, is an ancient land, rich in history, art and traditions. Already inhabited in the Bronze Age, the summit of Mount San Pancrazio houses the remains of a sixth-century cult center. The country itself has instead Roman origins, demonstrated by the discovery of funerary altar, coins and more.

Nicely re-painted alley, and a mural wonderfully depicted on the wall, Silvio.
A lion statue on the balcony under the grape-tree branches is a nice bonus to the scene.
Light condition were favorable and you managed beautifully to show the place.
Buona serata,

Dar sokaklar, eski duvar ve yeni binalar ile güzel bir düzenleme..
birde yaşam eklenmiş olsaydı tam olacaktı

Witaj Silvio!
Interesting alley, curious place.
Good frame and composition.
Nice colors and light.
Well done.
Good evening.

Hi Silvio,

The tight frame is putting the buildings in evidence. The point of view is shopwing the details of the doors and of the buildings. It is clear and precise. Have a nice day.


Ciao Silvio
splendido angolo, ma deve essere meraviglioso quando il glicine è in fiore.
Curiosa e antica la piccola porta di fronte, i due anelli sembrano due occhi piccolissimi.

Hi Silvio,
Nice architecture, well framed, a well balanced composition with all these details, good brightness and sharpness, tfs.

Ciao caro Silvio,

Nice corner from another Umbrian town. It doesn't look like winter with the flowers in pot. Lovely composition.

Kind regrads MAlgo

A lovely, gentle and quiet scene, well captured.


Hi Silvio
What a marvel of composition, I love these corners, ideal the effect of the unevenness, with doors and windows at different heights, the pots and the vine are very valuable adornments in this image.
Well done. I like.
You have a good day.
Very best regards, my friend.

Hi Silvio
such a wide range of little subjects placed all over the frame here. Its like they're placed all over specifically for us to find them and put them together :)

the Iron gate on the door is excellent, so is that tiny arch on the bottom in the middle - what is that used for????
i like the window shutters, the light fixtures, the mailbox on the wall, the stone...so much in this little scene.
very charming. cheers

Ciao Silvio
Belle composition, les détails ajoute un charme a cet endroit agréable, bien présenter
belle soirée

Ciao Silvio,
mi piace l' antiquita', l' intimita' ed il carattere discretto di quest' angolo del villaggio. La tua composizione ci offre ottimi dettagli e prospettive attraenti. E' molto interessante come le tre porte chiuse esprimono dei caratteri diversi e fanno il nostro sguardo girare dall' una all' altra. Complimenti e grazie!
Tanti saluti e buon fine settimana,

Hello Silvio,
Here is another charming alley from Calvi of Umbria. I like the mural on the facade and the little arched entry.
