Pitigliano, Mi Amore – Part #3

Before we get started just a few friendly reminders:

  1. Entries to Thursday Doors are accepted each week until noon on Saturday, eastern North American time zone. Comments will be closed after that. If you miss the deadline, feel free to save your post for the next week.
  2. If you wish to share your post with others here, then please add your link in the comments section below. Pingbacks do not consistently work on my blog so do not count on them to appear in place of your own self-added link.

Picking up where we left off last week and the week before, we come to the end of my bountiful collection from Pitigliano.

I probably could have stretched this into two posts but I figured I’d push the envelope, or end our visit with a crescendo by squeezing a whole bunch of shots into this last batch.

Lion head door knockers again.

Middle-position door knobs get noticed

Ghost door – a door that used to be…

These next three are my personal favourites from this set.

A semi doorfie 😉

In hilltop villages you find not only lovely doors, but lots and lots of stairs.

And another ghost door.

Probably a good thing that this one is sealed off.

Yes, this one is as narrow as it looks.

Two looks at four (and then five) doors.

And just in case you thought we were done with all of the climbing, let’s have a few more sets of stairs.

As always I thank you for stopping in 🙂

  1. I like the diagonal door with the knob in the center. Nice door. Too many steps.

    Numbers 15 & 59 — my faves! They’re all spectacular finds. Noted chain and lock, handsome for someone else.
    All those warm steps and angles, great backdrop, too!

    Wonderful! Like many doors in France, I see that several of Pitigliano’s doors have knobs in the middle too! My favorite in this batch is the first one, but the rustic doors are cool also! Here’s mine:

      Thanks. The middle position door knob seems so unusual to my North American eye, it just fascinates me. I’d love to know how/why this design came into being.

    Amazing as usual. From the ornate one like the first to some of the old wooden ones that are very old, they all tell a story.

    I feel as thought I’ve taken a walk through Pitigliano and falling ever more in love with this part of the world. I would love to look as these doors, these alleyways, this landscape every day of my life and envy those who do! That last ghost door, I wonder what sort of stairway led down/up to it as it is rather high up. Terrific photos this week Norm…but they usually are!

  12. Love the subtle beauty of the first door. Am sure glad I don’t have to walk those steep stairs every day:) That narrow opening – wow, what a find!

  15. You’re too generous, Norm – I’d have made at least three posts out of your excellent offerings this week. Meanwhile, here’s a typically tight-fisted half dozen from Perigueux.

      Thank for the kind words. I’ve got a few good “local” posts in the queue for the next few weeks otherwise I would have stretched this out a bit longer 😉

    Wow! Just. Wow! So much age, so many arches! I love looking at all those stairs. Climbing them, not so much, but I love looking at them. My post today was a gift from a friend in England.

  22. Great collection of doors! My favorite is the “semi doorfie” I would have loved to see it in use… I wonder if the owner has to turn sideways to enter and exit?

    The door with diagonal wood is unusual. I’ve never seen anything like it.

  25. I was right there with you, and many times before and after, and still find it fascinating. I especially like how you spotted the four and then five doors. 🙂 And I told amore how you named this post and how many have you had from Pitigliano and we agree that you will be back. Can’t wait. 🙂

      Thanks Manja. I feel so fortunate and so grateful that we got to see this place even once, especially with the help of such good company 😉
      You may be right; we may get back there yet, though I really don’t know when.

  26. Great doors, Norm but I’m exhausted climbing all those stairs, lol. Love the stonework, too.

    Everything about this post speaks of Italy. The narrow doors are always a fascination to me. How does your average person in the 21st century actually get through those doors?!
    However the scenes with all the stairs are my favourite, especially the 2nd last one. There are doorways in there!

    I think you found door heaven. love the ghost door still with hinges, and those old lop-sided wooden doors with large bolts are just amazing. I need to get out more. My doors are the final set from Flaine in France…If modern doors are not your thing, then look away now…

    First door is a conundrum. The latch side would appear to have to be opened first (normally are) but the base molding would make that difficult.Love the knockers and the ghost doors. Your favorites get high marks from me, Norm. I love the uneven splits.

    My favorite photo is the narrow stairs under that long narrow opening.

    I don’t have a post (yet). I may be back.

  31. Lots of lines, vertical and horizontal, in your doors this week, Norm. Nicely mirrored by the steep steps in the narrow alleyways. I have yet more Nepali doors – but this is the penultimate.
