Door, Monte Santa Maria Tiberina, Umbria, August 2018

Thursday doors

Doors 43

This week I offer you another little gallery of doors from a recent trip to Umbria Italy. This set of doors are from a small hilltop town called Monte Santa Maria Tiberina, nestled between Arezzo to the west and Citta di Castello to the east.

We used to visit this area quite frequently in the 1980s and 1990s and I recall the town forever playing host to a couple of large cranes. These were lovingly (and slowly) restoring the whole town and some of its buildings. The cranes have gone now, thank goodness.

Some doors are the originals, but you might notice that the feature image, for example, is a faithful reproduction. I love the way this little town has retained its heritage without giving in to the trappings of modern urbanisation (apart from the rather unnecessarily ugly interpretation board below).

  1. More door envy, Stephen. I am a very proud Australian, and I love living here. However, it’s so expensive and time consuming to get over to Europe. I love real historic architecture like this.
    Best wishes,
