The main piazza  - Castelluccio style ;-)

Couldn't resist putting this one in.  It sums up the rough and ready appearance of the town perfectly.  Note the 'graffiti' on the walls, a local tradition.  Everything from proposals of marriage, to denouncing politicians, displayed for all to see (if you can understand it).

The words on the left hand wall translate as...

"The Very Important People ran away at their very first meeting; insisting on imparting orders, they had finally nothing better to do than shit out."

Thanks to Sergio Servadio and Francesco Bille for that.

Unfortunately, we've not been able to get anywhere with the other wall as the start of the words have been plastered over.
