A walk through Guardia Sanframondi
|View from my apartment of the valley below Guardia Sanframondi|
This is a view from the bottom of the garden, looking to the residency complex above (the stone and terra-cotta colored walls). The apartment is the bottom two floors with the stone walls, with access to the tiered garden. The studio and a second apartment for artists is directly above on the third floor, with terra-cotta colored walls. It was accessible from the street above, Via Filippo Maria Giudi. Homes here are laid out like labyrinths, connecting to one another and stacked into the hillside. The garden contained three levels, filled with fig and olive trees, grape vines, passionfruit, star jasmine and flowering artichoke plants taller than me.drawings.
Many mornings, I passed this apartment with the partially painted yellow wall on my walk into town for espresso and a donut (bombolone).
