Don Donovan's World - Castiglione di Garfagnana

Ramblings of a much published New Zealand author

29 September 2012

Leaves From My Sketchbooks. 41. Castiglione di Garfagnana

The castellated wall and circular tower to the right of my drawing are parts of the walls that encircle 'fortress' Castiglione. The tower has a pyramidal cover that is bright red and looks like something from a Disney Camelot.

I worked from a small, quiet garden of remembrance that commemorates the fallen (caduti) of the world wars; not only soldiers but also the partisans who took to the hills in World War II and fought with fierce courage.
