Rainy Day In Nemi. Italy
Photograph - Img_6271
Photograph taken on a beautiful rainy day in the small town of Nemi. It is a town and commune in the province of Rome(central Italy), in the Alban Hills overlooking Lake Nemi, a volcanic crater lake. It is 4 mi northwest of Velletri and about 19 mi southeast of Rome. Nemi is famous for its wild strawberries, which are smaller and sweeter than commercially grown varieties. Nemi's strawberries are grown on the sides of the volcanic crater, which creates a microclimate that retains the warmth of the sun and provides a wind shield. Nemi conducts an annual festival of strawberries. The town's name derives from the Latin nemus, or "holy wood". In antiquity the area had no town, but the grove was the site of one of the most famous of Roman cults and temples: that of Diana Nemorensis, a study of which served as the seed for Sir James Frazer's seminal work on the anthropology of religion, The Golden Bough.
