Owner's Photo Competition


And the winner of this months Owner’s photo competition goes to Dan and Dotty Giggler from Pittsburgh, USA for their quintessential Tuscan theme image.

In their own words “This is a favorite photo from our various trips to Tuscany. It is of Montechiello and specifically, of two beautiful Vespa’s parked along the wall outside of Osteria La Porta. We took it a couple of years ago as we were waiting for our table to be ready at La Porta. An attractive woman and her male companion rode up, parked in front of us and strolled into the village. An enlarged version of the photo hangs in my office as a reminder of one of our favorite areas – the Val D’Orcia, Montechiello and (in the background of the photo) Pienza.

Each month one high-resolution photo will be chosen and circulated electronically; from now on the winner will fittingly be presented with a copy of the renowned American photographer Leonard Freed’s photo book Io Amo L’Italia. Freed’s exhibition Io amo l’Italia was held during 2012 in Milan, Rome and Turin and well supported by both critics and the general public. Leonard Freed once referred to his relationship with Italy as a “love story”.
