Maestro Einstein at Last!

5 Jul

Here he is! I actually have a video of him playing but adding it will take some time. He has resorted to playing in the afternoon as it has been raining each night. We spoke to him briefly…he appears to speak some English but not understand it, or at least chooses not to. No matter –  he is always entertaining!!!

Santa Margherita and the Medici Fortezza

5 Jul

Santa Margherita is considered the patron saint of Cortona. The church in her honor sits atop the city, just under the Medici Fortress. We climbed to the top today, the highest point of Cortona. Not sure we could have reached it when we first got here, but we now have hiking legs, and even so, it’s quite a climb. But make it we did, and of course, the Church was closed, but beautiful from the outside.

Since we have been here, we have seen posters announcing an exhibit called Life in Valdichiana (the valley). Little did we know that the exhibit was in the Fortress… a wonderful surprise. It’s a completely high tech, multi room, multi screen exhibit on the history of the valley and the towns which surround it. Enjoy!
