The Via Galeazzo Alessi, Perugia, Italy by 

Perugia is the regional capital of Umbria, the “Green Heart of Italy”, and is an ancient hill-top settlement. Its streets have evolved to cling to the hill-side as they curve their way up to the top. This has also resulted in what might be called medieval high-rise buildings!

The whole of the middle of Perugia has been designated 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.

  • This has lain dormant for a while, but having another look convinced me that the shot has some merits: I’m glad you seem to agree! Philip
