the old & the new

Anyone know where I took this photo?
Hint – it was taken in Italy.
I will give you the answer tomorrow evening.





*The answer is: Foligno
While traveling by train from Spello to Trevi, I needed to make a change in Foligno. I had about 30 minutes to kill while and so I wandered outside the train station. After walking about five minutes, I noticed this cool looking arch smack dab in the middle of this modern city. I loved the stark contrast between the old and the new. The photo is not the greatest (blurry, older camera) but I still love this photo.

  1. Hi Girasoli, it’s a great looking Arch but I’m afraid I don’t know this one. I’ll be interested to find out the answer.


  2. This is a WILD guess, but Arezzo?
    I remember stepping out of the train station there, crossing the street, and passing lots of 1960s-era buildings — as well as parts of the city’s historic wall.


  3. Kathy, I just loved how it seemed so out of place.
    menehune, Naples – yes, Genova – yes, Milan – yes. But nope not from any of those places. See my next post for the end of the saga :)
    Marcee & Annie, I also loved the contrast. So out of place but also so Italy.
    sandra, I am surprised you didn’t get this with the comment I left on your blog. You will probably will make the connection now that I posted the answer.
    Leslie, Happy Easter to you too :)


  4. Maria, I am not sure if it is located in a popular location. I just happened to wander about 5 minutes from the train station when I saw it. I could not tell you which way I walked though.
