Summer sketches – Part 1

We are finally off to Italy for a well deserved summer break! First stop is Pescina, up on the mountains of Abruzzo, in central Italy, to visit my partner’s family.
The town is in the middle of what used to be a lake, il Fucino, drained in 1875. Nowadays it’s a patchwork of cultivated land surrounded by the Sirente-Velino and Vallelonga mountains.
