Wood Doors – Lucca

Here we are again, if you visit my blog regularly, you know that I love wood doors. There is something about them; perhaps it is what is behind them that interests me? Could it be a loggia or are the stairs right in front of you?

The other thing about the wood doors is that they are personal. Someone, one day made a decision on the type of door they are going to have as an entry to their home. Some have initials in iron decorating the top portion of the door. Does the person with the initials still live there?

Besides the makeup of the door, wood; there is shape, color, accessories such as knockers and handles that interests me. I do not recall as of today ever seeing the same door. There are some that are similar but not the same. The doors in Lucca were different in the fact that most, not all, had steps up to them. I assume it is because Lucca is not a “flat” town.

Wood doors is my obsession; what’s yours?

    So excited to have found your blog! I can’t wait to hear all about your adventures in Italy. I also love doors and spend a few weeks of every year leading tours based in Lucca, but my door post that I am linking is from the town my grandparents came from in Campania.
