L’ora di Barga by Giovanni Pascoli

Al mio cantuccio, donde non sento
se non le reste brusir del grano....
This is my corner, from where I can hear even the brushing of the wheat...

Canti di Castelvecchio no 41
Giovanni Pascoli (1855-1912)

Chair in Barga beneath the cathedral campanile (bell tower) with a grand view of the Alpi Apuae, painted with lines from the one of the poet’s Songs of Castelvecchio, the town nearby in the Serchio valley below where he spent many happy years. I’ve quoted just the first line of the poem “L’ora di Barga”.
