Word on the Street

There’s this little street along the edge of Pienza (which is a lovely town, by the way), and it has four streets that are perpendicular to it. The first one I noticed was Via Del Bacio. 


Street of the Kiss. I thought, how sweet! I’d love to live on a street called that.

The next street was Via Dell’Amore. 


Street of Love. REALLY sweet, I thought. The city planner must’ve been a real romantic. I wonder what the next street’s called.

Via Della Fortuna. 


Street of Fortune. I excused myself from the family and told them I needed to check out that fourth and final street.

Via Buia.


Street of Dark, Black, Somber. 

Talk about a buzz kill.
