Badia Castle

Cee’s Compose Yourself: Leading lines

Cee has a new challenge and I’ll do my best to play along, pretending I get it. 🙂 Yes, it’s technical. This one is about lines leading places. Let’s see if I can take you along. My lines are arranged from the straightest to the curviest. No need to amplify that I prefer the latter.

Thursday Doors, October 23

And we are back to the ancient Etruscan metropolis Vulci and the museum in the Badia castle which was closed the last time. You guessed it – for more doors. Let’s play a game Follow This Man.

In the courtyard there is the ticket booth. And lots of doors. And extra stones.

The entrance to the museum is a lovely curtained aperture.

The collection of heads from a long, long, long time ago (3rd to 2nd century BC). Can’t shake the impression that these people were rather pleased with their lives.

The funky staircase to the upper floor and higher.

The balcony on the first floor and the view of the bridge.

The cutest little toilet door? But… what about the giants?

Bye bye, Vulci. We will return. This remarkable museum and surroundings deserve more visitors.

Thursday Doors, September 10

The travelling uncleberry was here again. That’s right, the door-pointing one. I can’t believe it’s that time again. But today it’s not only the doors, and there is only one building in question.

This time we didn’t explore much due to my flu but we did return to the ancient Etruscan metropola of Vulci between Montalto di Castro and Canino which I discovered once by chance with the help of sheep above the emerald Fiora, and tried to return by taking a too bumpy and river-crossed country road.

We have learnt that the beautiful Badia Castle, with two doors, hosts a museum which is free every first Sunday of the month. We missed that by one day. Mondays they are closed, therefore we shall return.
