Frances Mayes on Italy

From “Etruscan Sunlight,” a piece about the town of Cortona, published in Traveler’s Tales:  Italy (Solas House, Inc., Palo Alto) with an Introduction by Jan Morris:

There are tombs from 800 to 200 B.C. near the train station in Camucia and on the road to Foiano, where the custodian never likes the tip.  Maybe he’s in a bad mood because he spends eerie nights.  His small farmhouse, with a bean patch and yard-roaming chickens, coexists with this tomba that would appear strangely primordial in the moonlight.  A little uphill, a rusted yellow sign is all that points to the so-called tomb of Pythagoras.

Stay tuned, dear blog readers.  Stay tuned.
