Stone Heads in Citerna

Citerna was an Italian hill town we visited one fine afternoon in November, 2010, which I detailed a bit here. It’s well worth a visit if you ever happen to be in Northern Umbria and like art, good coffee, and amazing views (and who worth their salt doesn’t?). Wandering through the town we took a right turn up some stairs in hunt of a particular antique fireplace and all of a sudden were face-to-face with these carved heads:

I was both scared (they do have that “we will now pronounce your doom” look about them) and in wonder (at how you never know in Italy when you’ll all-of-a-sudden be face-to-face with art).

*Note: We were on pre-tirement, and now we’re back. Want the full story? Start the pre-tirement journey here. Want to go backwards? Read the last pre-tired post here and scroll back. Or, just keep coming back for pretty Italy pictures.
