Sperlonga, Italy, 1970

Fishing Village

Sperlonga is a place I remember as a vertical village. The town clung to the side of a cliff, a warren of stucco buildings connected by vertiginous stairs. The cliff's feet sat in the sea and fishing boats were constantly coming and going. It's recorded that the Emporer Tiberius had a summer villa here. I think the two boys are about to go fishing.

And it looks like Grandma is giving some final instructions. My family and I lived in the Rome area from 1970 to 1974. Great memories. Maybe I will post a couple of shots from those days. E
