The Roof

Oh, look, our roof!
Since we don't pay by the hour anymore all goes so fast.
Who has approved the roof tiles (coppi)? You? No.
Well, nice that we don't have to worry and think about everything.

I guess the colour matches the commune's standards. And I hope they please the neighbours too.

We had talked about roof tiles last year and agreed to use 'antique' looking coppi as it is an old house in the historical center of the village. You are not free to choose any colour. The commune regulates the use of tiles in the historical center. They all should be of the same colour: kind of light red, pinkish apricot. This is a good thing because it makes the old town look so beautiful:


  1. Oh sunshine how I wish it were sunny and warm here. My heating is off and I still have those bloody builders crawling all over me. Send me some sunshine please

  2. That is the most beautiful roof I have ever seen!

  3. Hi Anna,
    you must come to Pizzo!
    All roofs here are beautiful!
