Updated: Domus Civita

Civita di Bagnoregio, Italy
02.27.2013 | by: Meghan

Since my dream trip last summer to Domus Civita — Patrizio Fradiani’s ancient cave house — he’s had professional photographs taken. For those who followed along with the gutsy renovation process, finally a worthy payoff. Chicago photographer Bob Coscarelli captures the magic of the place — the quiet interior, the soft light, the soulful connection between inside and outside, and the depths and history of those miraculous caves. Accessed only by pedestrian footbridge, the town Civita de Bagnoregio is straight out of time. A picturesque mess of cobblestone streets, climbing ivy and a pace that makes the rest of Italy look downright harried, the town and the surrounding landscape (views of the Tibor river valley and clay rooftops out every flung-open window) both play an inextricable part of the experience. The garden… that gazebo, I start feeling euphoric just thinking about sitting out there. But I won’t carry on — I’ve already done enough of that here and here — but I do want to share these photographs, because they do such a beautiful job of finalizing the story.

  6. In the great scheme of things you actually secure a B- for effort. Where exactly you actually lost us was in all the particulars. As it is said, details make or break the argument.. And that couldn’t be more correct in this article. Having said that, let me say to you just what exactly did deliver the results. The writing is actually extremely persuasive which is possibly why I am making an effort in order to comment. I do not make it a regular habit of doing that. 2nd, whilst I can certainly see the jumps in reason you come up with, I am not necessarily convinced of exactly how you seem to unite your points which in turn produce the actual conclusion. For now I will, no doubt subscribe to your position but wish in the future you link your dots better.
