Hai calcato molto con la difficoltà questo colpo!
Saluti, Alberto.

Looks like Craco, but there are no trees around Craco as far as I know.

Hi Jan. We are far enough away from Craco. Craco is an uninhabited city (a ghost town), while this is, as it may seem strange, an inhabited town.
But perhaps even stranger is to think that we are only 40 kilometers from a big Italian city.

Analyzing the trees I see a bit Fagus, maybe some oaks and cypresses on the hilltop / right side. Hence we are not quite far north neither quite far south. In Italy - of course!

Great analysis. You're right.
Alberto also gave a good suggestion, but to understand it, you need to know Italian.

Personally I think we are in the Marken or in Umbria. Not in "Tuscany", neither in the area of Bologna or even north. In all these places the mountains are too steep to allow for such plateaus ....

I think it could be Narni on the river Nera (30 km to Roma ...). But I am not completely sure ...

Hi Christoph. For me it is almost amazing that such a wild place is only 35 km from the center of Rome. But it is not Narni.

With your kind help I finally located it: Calcata

What a place !!

I thank you very much for taking me virtually through Latium. I learned that there are a lot of very beautiful places. So maybe next time we will not leave the autostrada at Firenze Sud but go on for some more Kilometers south ;-))

Now I also understand why Alberto was already solving the riddle. But can you / you both help me with a translation of the saying he wrote?

Herzlichst Christoph

Hi Christoph. Alberto did just a simple game of words between "calcato" and "Calcata".
Calcato In Italian means different things. You can translate it in English with "trod" or "pressed".
