Orange Cagli in Le Marche, Italy

Italy is a curious mix of dark and light, of good, bad and ugly.  Cagli, a small town in the Le Marche region of Italy, looks good and light.  Here is a photograph of one of Cagli’s buildings.

Pastel colours are everywhere in Italy.  Pinks, greens, rusty and sandy browns.  Sometimes, though, the colours go beyond pastel, such as in this photograph in which the colour of this Cagli building is predominantly orange.

Photographers must find Italy a sheer delight, I know I do.

On to this image of Italy.

Here’s a little tip: Avoid Rome and Florence for the moment – far too hot in July anyway, and head for somewhere off the beaten track, like Cagli, for example.

I was going to talk about Italy’s prime minister and his usual shenanigans, but the subject is just too darn depressing, so I decided to brighten up your day and show you one of Italy’s many better sides.

The Berlusconi Effect

He’s done it again. Once more Italy’s scandal ridden leader has managed to hold onto power in Italy by the skin of his teeth.

His decline is inexorable, inevitable, but Silvio Berlusconi is not at the end of the road just yet.

Yesterday’s victory, albeit very slim, demonstrated how deeply Berlusconi’s talons reach into the flesh of Italian politics and Italian society.
