Rita and I were noodling around back roads somewhere in Umbria when we saw a tiny hamlet atop a small hill. The dirt road wound past ancient olive trees up to this crumbling tower, surrounded by a a handful of homes, still being lived in. As the old women swept their thresholds with twig brooms, we stopped to admire the rising moon and take a few photos.
Moments like these are why we love Italy.
