Vagli Sotto at night

2013/08/04

The historical center of the village Vagli Sotto (Garfagnana, Province of Lucca, Tuscany, Italy) is not only interesting by day, but also by night. At late night the village is as empty as by day – except from the cats and – in the darker outskirts – the fireflies. But you hear people snore behind the open windows and the running water from the water source on one of the squares.

The stone houses and the narrow alleys look different than during the day. Now the light does not come from above from the sun, but from the poorly shielded street lamps which spill most of their light in the horizontal plane and upwards and thus contribute to blinding, light smog and other forms of light pollution. Nevertheless, the village is also charming at late night.
