The evening passeggiata along the Corso Vannucci as seen from the Piazza Quattro Novembre, Perugia, Italy by 


Perugia is the elegant provincial capital of Umbria, the “Green Heart of Italy”, and the Corso Vannucci is its principal street. The former palaces of the Perugian nobility which line its gentle curves now have chic cafés and shops on their ground floors, catering to the tastes of well-heeled 21st century Italians, while above are desirable apartments and expensive offices. Perugians like nothing better of an evening than the traditional passeggiata, a gentle stroll up to the Piazza Quattro Novembre with its magnificent fountain, beautifully lit at night; here is a chance to chat, to see and and be seen, and to happen upon friends doing just the same.

The whole medieval centre of Perugia is designated as the “Centro Storico” (Historic Centre) by the city authorities.

I am based near Winchester in mid-Hampshire (UK) and have enjoyed photographing a wide variety of subjects for over 40 years, though the digital revolution has been a real boon.

    Wonderful shot of this, Philip!

  • Thank you. I sat and watched and waited for this, the camera on a tiny, pocketable tripod I had recently bought from a little photographers just at the other end of this shot. Philip
