When the big battues for wild boars are finished in November and December, the most silent time is comming up here at Rapale.
For Christmas, with great feeling Olivio is preparing a crib together with the apostle. Outside of the San Miniato church, it becomes a very atmospheric scene.
Up and now it happens, that in the morning it seems to be even more silent as usual during this period. Looking out the window, we do have a very special experience:
Snow has fallen last night !
The snow-plough has to clear the road between Ambra valley and Rapale. But the roads for Palazzuolo and Sogna remain closed for some days. Last time this happened in winter 2012.
