ta ta ta taaaaaa - Fanfare !!!

"Al piano terra i muri sono tutti demoliti.
Stanno portando via le macerie
ciao Angelo"

Today I got an email from Angelo, my father-in-law, who is on site in Pizzo since a couple of days. Since Monday we have the permission! The GO! And the workers started right away. They took down the walls in the piano terra , the ground floor. The first picture is taken from the living room showing the dining area and the new large space of the kitchen. The old bathroom is gone, the bathtub is out. And the former bathroom window will be part of the new kitchen. It is great for me to see the new space. Even if it's just from that photo. I try to "feel" it. Sounds funny. But being so far away, I have no other option. I am looking at this picture and try to imagine how we will prepare breakfast or lunch - in order to find out how to arrange the kitchen.

Ah, and the second picture shows the dumping of the debris. But not only that. You can see the first furniture we 'inherited' with the palazzo: a pink plastic chair. And you see our  quiet narrow alley. No truck will make it through here...

Grazie Angelo. I am looking forward to more pictures soon.

PS: I learned that the spots on picture number 1 are not spots on Angelo's lens, they are ORBS! A sign for good vibs, good energy! And it is so true, this room feels fantastic!


  1. I can't imagine how excited you must feel! And can hardly wait to see how it progresses.

  2. Congratulations, Suzie! I know you are excited that progress is finally underway. I know it's been a long time coming. Can't wait to see what's next!

  3. Congratulations! How exciting! I can live out my dream of a holiday house in southern Italy through you now!

  4. Hi avid Palazzo Pizzo readers - Susanne has asked me to post a message to let you all know that she won't have access to blogger for a little while (issues with censorship in China etc.) so hold on until she's on holiday elsewhere and she will be able to update us all on the progress of her Italian palazzo!

  5. Suzy, thanks for the comment.

    Since my visitors in China have left I had time to find a solution to go around the Great Firewall of China... I used - since I used it, it seems that I have normal access.

    It is just strange.

    Also emails disappear from time to time. So please keep writing again, when you do not get an answer.

    Anyway, I am back and blogging!
