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!
