Description: Vita Laeta, that is "Vita Lieta"in the italian language. "Vitaleta" comes from latin word "Vita Laeta"and mirror translation is "Happy Life". This Church (no longer an official one from 1910 or a little bit before....end of 1800....)lives between San Quirico and Pienza. In these last years it became the "icon"of Tuscany. Its magical look is rich of Architecture and its History I must proudly write is the History of my family branch, in special way of my grand-grandpa and grand-grandma.Nothing to add so I'll not be boring for You All.....P.S. I achieved for a pano compo so including a few elements around Church living there from the past centuries. It seemed to me more realistic and true. I have another pano with an interesting rainbow in the far background(a few minutes before it was raining in the far left of the compo. See strange light and colours there). Honestly speaking I do prefer simplicity of this capture.Too many "actors"on the same "stage" are disturbing, in my humble opinion. For other reasons I have choosen not to use strange colours, hard post editing or something else that is fake and not useful to describe that charming place. It is itself magical…in “its heart or core”. Charming doesn’t mean fake: a fake sky, fake fog, fake tones, fake mood, fake lights and shadows that honestly speaking I have never seen there: neither in winter nor in spring or autumn or summer. I have tried to avoid part of the house on the right because on its facade live “electric power devices”. Disturbing. LEICA V-Lux on tripod. PANO mode. Date: Sept. 2017."Se ce l'avessero detto non lo avremmo creduto:vedemmo coi nostri occhi e dobbiamo confessare che la nuova Chiesa di Vitaleta è lavoro che innamora chi ha gusto pell'Arte e sente ancora in petto l'Antica Fede."
