Photographer's Note

This time it is not an alley in Corfu during the pandemic.

The city of Corfu stands on the broad part of a peninsula, whose termination in the Venetian citadel is cut off from it by an artificial fosse formed in a natural gully, with a seawater moat at the bottom, that now serves as a marina and is called the Contrafossa. The old town, having grown within fortifications, where every metre of ground was precious, is a labyrinth of narrow streets paved with cobblestones, sometimes tortuous but colourful and clean. These streets are known as kanto˙nia , and the older amongst them sometimes follow the gentle irregularities of the ground; while many are too narrow for vehicular traffic.
