When I arrived in Ponte a Serraglio last week I was very disappointed to learn that the Barber Shop has closed.
I used to love watching the men lined up there every day for a chat and a haircut or shave.
I don’t know how long Valter had been there, providing what I thought was an essential service in the village, but I think it is quite a while.
He has retired to spend his time enjoying his other interests, including his art.
Apparently Valter tried to find someone to take over, but nobody was interested. In these times of under employment I am surprised and disappointed about this.
Valter, you will be missed.
