Expat Life in Le Marche: Keeping time in Mogliano

Expat Life in Le Marche: Keeping time in Mogliano | Le Marche another Italy | Scoop.it

Jasper took up the piano last year and I took these photographs while he was at his lesson this week. Mogliano is empty on weekday afternoons between lunch and five, and the misty February air and the echo of my footsteps gave the town an eerie, timeless feel.
This year I decided to take up the piano again. I think of myself as having recently given it up so it was startling to realise that my last lesson was 37 years ago. I wondered whether this explained my struggle to keep up with the metronome as I massacred a Bach prelude; after all Jasper has been whisking through Scott Joplin with the metronome without difficulty. But after a few weeks I downloaded a metronome app onto my phone, thus revealing Jasper’s musical flexibility, in adapting to our old metronome’s moody beat.

Halloween in Mogliano, le Marche

Halloween in Mogliano, le Marche | Le Marche another Italy | Scoop.it

Last week everyone in Mogliano was busy. Lorries trundled into town to unload giant figures, leaving us with two dragons staring down from the hill above the market place, and a leering face strung high above the road leading through the old town. Men on ladders shrouded the street lights with red and black fabric and the bars and restaurants filled up with decorations until it became difficuilt to grab a quick coffee without picking up long strands of white cobweb or the occasional small black bat.
