Deliriously Inescapable


This is the medieval town of Calcata, Italy. Founded on a cliff-top, with no room to grow, it ultimately has evolved into a crushed web of tunnels, stairs, twisting paths, balconies and archways. All of this makes for an curiously inticing town: the kind of place that seems to lure the innocent tourist into its maze-like interior... then never lets him go. It's true. A number of people, especially visiting artists, have been seduced by Calcata's dangerously hypnotic charms; they've moved in and never left, transforming Calcata into a virtual modern-day art colony.

Incredible.... I haven't even wandered these streets in person, but after viewing all the photos in three galleries I can easily believe that I would be one of those relocated artists....
