Our house at Ponte a Serraglio has had a few changes since it was originally built. Here is a photo taken at the beginning of the 1900s.
The front of the building was damaged in WWII. It was originally one house, but at some stage it was divided into 2 apartments with a shop below.
Take a look at a post I wrote a while ago, where my friend Tina talks about the Ponte a Serraglio she remembers from her youth. Click here to hear Tina’s story.
This is what our house looks like now.
I am very pleased that the little balcony was added.
I would love to know the story of the faces above our doors and windows.
From our position on the bridge I can observe what happens in the piazza, and it is just a few steps to breakfast at Il Monaco for Annalisa’s great coffee and pastries…reason enough to live in Ponte a Serraglio. Click here to meet Annalisa.
