Dear Betty, Here's the one painting of Piero's that they have in Milan. Here in Arezzo, the whole back of a church is covered with his glorious "Search for the True Cross." Yesterday we especially missed you on one little journey up through the exquisite valley of Casentino. Last evening I ate a stuffed zucchini flower for dinner,

Love,
Jim & Annie*

*We discovered a tiny arcaded city with a castle yesterday. It has the magical name of Poppi! — sheer heaven. XXOO, Annie
