Walking on the Amalfi Coast

I pass this whitewashed entrance to a house on my usual walk, and every time the work “Salve” painted above the doorway catches my eye. This common expression of greeting in Italian simply means “hello,” but I always wonder about it as I pass by. I’ve never seen anyone coming or going, there are never any flowers outside on the stairs and the walls are always perfectly white. Who lives inside this house with such a welcoming expression painted above the doorway? Maybe one of these days I’ll find out as I walk by!
