Pascal Gautrand’s holiday in Riccione

Dear Shaded Viewers,

As I told you, I had tea with Pascal Gautrand yesterday and he was telling me about his holiday in Tuscany and Umbria. I asked him to send me a few holiday images and here they are:

If I remember correctly, Riccione is where the great love story began with Brian and Zowie of Boudicca it is also, I believe, the setting for Fellini’s La Strada.

Take care,
