At the entrance to Monticchiello, Tuscany, Italy, I captured a scene that felt like stepping into a storybook. An arched stone wall framed the passage, and beyond, a building's corner, bathed in warm light, welcomed travelers. The illuminated pathway guided the way into the heart of this charming village. It was a simple yet enchanting scene, a portal into the timeless beauty and history that lay within Monticchiello's embrace. Photo © copyright by Rich Voninski.
