Capalbio, Tuscany Part #3

Continuing our visit to Capalbio this week. In case you missed the previous posts from there you can see Part 1 here and Part 2 here.

Before I get started though just a quick note to let you know I’ll be taking a blogging break for the holidays. The last Thursday Doors post for 2019 will be on December 19th. For this post  I’ll be doing a year-end review of my favourite doors posted 2019, please feel free to do the same. In fact, I hope you do 😉

After a 2-week break, we’ll be back in the New Year with a fresh new post to start a new decade on January 9th, 2020.

But for now, here’s more of Capalbio:

Tight angle

I can’t imagine how old this one is but it looks original.

The shadow lamp and the hardware are the main features in this shot

Hidden courtyards and passageways all over!

That cute horizontal handle in the middle – is it just me or does it look a bit too delicate?

Green is good. Especially with a reflected Manja sighting in the shot as well 😉

So much to love in this one: the clean elegant lines, the simple classic brickwork, the handles….

That’s it for this time. I hope you enjoyed our ongoing tour.

  1. nice doors. I was watching Lego City (a cartoon) a few days ago. In it was a character called a doorman. It reminded me of you. But this character could open doors and magically be in different places. lol

    They’re all gorgeous winners of doors, that’s fersure! I love the green one with the attached metal framed window — so stunning with that shiny brass knocker in contrast. I also love the arches along the stone walk. Manja has really spoiled my eyes with all the arches over stone walks. I can never get enough of them 🙂

    I have just noticed that the commune must supply standard door number signs.

  4. All the doors are wonderful but have to admit those green doors call out to me – handsome. My best holiday wishes to you and yours, Norm. See you in 2020!

  7. So much character in each door you captured. And, I love the hinges on the rough wood doors. I think my favorite, though, is the green one with the interesting vases on the widowsill beside it (and Manja in the reflection too!). =) I hope you are staying warm and enjoy a nice weekend, Norm!

  8. Is there no end to your Italian door library, Norm? Excellent selection this week.
    I managed to give you two different Thursday Doors this week – https://drprunesquallor279704606.wordpress.com/2019/12/05/thursday-doors-in-the-va/
    and https://drprunesquallor279704606.wordpress.com/2019/12/05/thursday-doors-in-chelsea/
    What can I say? Once is not enough when it comes to doors.

  11. Gorgeous doors, Norm! Italy seems to be the gift that just keeps giving.

    My doors are from our recent trip to Oaxaca, Mexico. http://retirementallychallenged.com/2019/12/05/thursday-doors-vibrant-oaxaca/

    Hidden courtyards are my favorite views, because where I was born, also had a court yard! Great post Norm!

    Love all the brick and stone and arches and real (not hollow-core) doors! And hidden doors, passages, and courtyards are the bestest! Here’s my offering this week: https://marianallen.com/2019/12/heine-brothers-i-am-not-making-that-up-thursdaydoors/

  15. Italy is the paradise for door lovers. It is where I started my own collection of doors in 2005. Nice series. (Suzanne)

  16. What a great insight into my own back yard, all these three posts, Norm. Thanks for this. And for adding me to this wonderful green specimen. 🙂

    I can’t leave my family out of my post again. We had a great week. Plus various door gifts and a return to the special place.

    That 3rd door #4 is old and simple… a bit like me. Also it is very attractive…

  21. I like the hardware, the green doors, and the hidden courtyard. This year I actually wrote down when the break is so that I don’t end up doing a lone door post. 🙂 I have several unusual doors from antiquity this week:

    Beautiful as always. I’m always fascinated by how long wood lasts. I think some might even outlive concrete.

    I really liked doing the recap last time. Looking forward to it:)

    These are great doors, Norm. I especially like the green door/window/Manja combo. The window grill and reflection are perfect. I also like the photo from with in the covered little ally. I can picture thst being used in a movie.

    I’m showing just a couple doors today. https://nofacilities.com/2019/12/05/broad-brook-library-thursdaydoors/

    Warm wooden doors are always lovely, but the green one towards the end built into the archway is my favourite.

    Oh, I enjoyed all that wood, Norm. Very nice – warm and textured.

  28. The first one is my favorite. I love the gap between door and frame.
