Via Ianelli, Cortona

On Sunday we went to Cortona to visit an antiques market held on the third Sunday of each month. Of course, all but one of the roads to the town were closed because of a car race and when we finally got there we found the antiques market wasn’t on.

Instead, I took the opportunity to photograph via Ianelli, a narrow street off via Roma where many of the houses have overhangs. According to the book Cortona In Context, this is how much of Cortona would have looked, most of the overhangs were removed to allow more light into the streets.
