Dantourism


murales of the 1970s
Just back from a trip in the charming Medieval and Baroque hill town of Calvi dell'Umbria, some 2,000 inhabitants, for a presentation of the book Dante era uno scrittore fantasy (also available in English: Dante Was a Fantasy Writer). It's been a great success: old people in small towns are often so nice and lively! Besides, Calvi is near Narni, that suggested the name "Narnia" to CS Lewis, with really 'magic' landscapes and buildings; unfortunately there was no opportunity to take a good picture while crossing it in a hurry.
