Subject: Re: ZINE Sacro Monte (Sacred Mount) in Italy
Hi Frank, We, too, love Lago di Orta. The Sacro Monte was disappointing in a lot of ways. It is a gorgeous site with beautiful views and from a distance the individual buildings look intriguing. The interiors were a mess. I don't know whether they had just been left to decay or if there had been vandalism but after about the first three we didn't even bother to get closer. There was quite a story to tell there but so much was missing that we were unable to understand it. I can only imagine what it once must have been. Take care, Janet Riverview, FL
