You say black I say white

Cycling in Civitella del Tronto

Photo taken in July this year during one of our best day trips in Abruzzo. Civitella del Tronto boasts the narrowest street in Italy, about 60 cm wide, and a spectacular fortress, scene of the final showdown in 1861 between the Bourbon forces and those of the Kingdom of the Two Sicilies, led by Vittorio Emanuele I. The victory of the southerners led to the formation of contemporary Italy.

Got some more photos from the village, but don't want to spoil you by showing them in one go.

(Read: I don't know where they are and if I do I can't be bothered to wait for my old notebook to grind through Photoshop, taking around 60 seconds per action.)
