Inside the dying city - Civita di Bagnoregio, Italy

Vince chambray shirt (similar), Zara elbow patch sweater (similar) and boots (similar), Rag & Bone jeggings

Here is the second part of this post on the inside of Civita di Bagnoregio, the "dying city" in Italy. The city was so charming, but with a definite quiet desolate feel which I loved. The silence makes you notice the little things.. like a pop of orange from an unattended persimmon tree against its archaic surroundings, skinny stray cats meowing for some scraps and affection, and the apparent restorative efforts of newer arches supporting the ancient Etruscan architecture. My favorite moment is the last photo of when we were leaving the city just as the sun was setting and the entire entryway was illuminated with a fiery amber glow.
