One thing I look for as I travel around are Laundry Lines. I find them fascinating from so many points of view. From their location to what and how things are hung on them.
This laundry line was seen from the balcony, of my Son's in-law's vacation home in Pigna, Italy.
As I turned around I saw this line in a window right next to the balcony.
These are the first photos I took on this trip to Italy. Italy is a paradise of clotheslines.
I was looking at my favorite TV show, "Sunday Morning" on CBS. They had a segment on laundry lines and the fact that they are banned in many Sub-divisions in this country. This was an eye opening segment and well worth watching.
Vermont Country Store is part of The "Right to Dry" Campaign.
What does it say about us as a country, that there has to be an effort to make legislation to give us a right to hang out our laundry? Sadly it seems that the ban on hanging out your laundry, has been spreading to other countries.
So far it has not spread to Northern Italy...or has it...perhaps the laundry lines I am showing you here are illegal ;)
I am on my way out to see if any of my Neighbors are breaking the law...if they are I will post photos here.
