Very long holidays in Amandola!!

The carpenter's notice on his door in Piazza Alta, Amandola

The notice on the door says "The carpenter will be on holidays from 23.12.2012 until 31.12.2014." 

 

It has intrigued me since I first saw his sign when we arrived in Amandola in February, 2007.  At that time the sign said "Closed for holidays from 31.12.2006 until 31.12.2007". There's been a variation thereof ever since. In the end, curiosity got the better of me and I asked a local about it. Turns out that the carpenter isn't on holidays but he has so much work that he doesn't want to be disturbed! 

 

Lucky for him!
