Small Chapel at Exilles (870m, Susa Valley)

Le chiese

Amo veder le chiese
nelle piazze e nelle vie delle città,
amo vedere le dolci chiesette
nei villaggi di campagna,
nei paesini sperduti di montagna,
amo veder le austere cattedrali,
le basiliche imponenti.
Il mondo senza chiese
sarebbe un mondo squallido e angosciante:
un mondo senza Dio, sconcertante.

Hello Pietro, this little chapel looks like it has been around for a "few" years. It must have seen some changes, heard some happy and some sad whispers. It is a very beautiful picture and the poetry is nice too so my Italian is not as good as it should be. Thank you so much for your kind comments always lovely to hear from you. T.

Ah! Love the poem!
My Italian is not good but I understood the meaning of the poem.
I have a translation tool named Babylon and it is very useful.

Un saluto e complimenti per i versi
Che bella la città con quest'aria un pò frizzante:-)

looks like it has survived through the bad times.

can be considered a fortress.

Bella capella direi romantica. Mi piacciono queste chiesette vecchie come anche il tuo pensiero.
Baci e buona giornata

So well framed. Lovely picture.

So much rustic beauty tucked away--what a story it could tell! Nicely done, my friend.

Ciao Pietro, buon inizio settimana ed un saluto:-)

Una piccola cappella tra il verde, tanto fascino e mistero.

Un abbraccio Pietro e buon inizio settimana!

The humble simplicity of its building adds to the church's richness.

I love this church! Wonderful photo.
