The Wider Image: Reviving a medieval Italian village
Within the stone walls of the medieval village of Santo Stefano di Sessanio, narrow lanes weave through stone arches, cobbled piazzas and overhanging buildings. The streets are mainly empty, except for tourists admiring the architecture and surrounding hills in Italy's southern L'Aquila province. A village which over centuries lived off agriculture and wool, Santo Stefano di Sessanio has just 108 inhabitants, less than a tenth of its pre-World War One population according to its mayor. Like many surrounding villages, most residents left for work in cities or abroad, leaving it all but abandoned. Decades later, its untouched architecture caught the attention of Swedish-Italian entrepreneur Daniele Kihlgren, who came across it on a 1999 motorbike trip. Kihlgren bought several houses, turning them in 2005 into a hotel with rooms scattered around the centre. The project has drawn tourists and injected life back into the village, according to locals.

A Catalan separatist flag, known as Estelada, flutters on the top of the medieval bridge in the old city of Besalu, near Girona, April 5, 2014. The wealthy northeastern region of Catalonia last month dropped plans for a non-binding referendum on independence from Spain on Nov. 9 after a court declared such a vote against the constitution and had instead planned to hold a "consultation of citizens" on the same day. Although Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy and politicians in Catalonia have called for dialogue over the region's status after the initial referendum plans were abandoned, tensions are still simmering before the Nov. 9 alternative vote.

Journalists, clergy members look at Spanish Renaissance painter El Greco's "El Expolio", or "The Disrobing of Christ", painting during a ceremony marking its return following restoration to the sacristy of the Cathedral of Toledo January 22, 2014. For centuries El Greco was a non-entity. No one studied his startling, unconventional work hanging high in a gothic cathedral, obscure convents and Spanish museums. It wasn't until the 19th century that modern painters rediscovered the artist - who was born Domenicos Theotocopoulos on Crete and lived and painted in Toledo, Spain from 1577 until his death in 1614 - and found inspiration in his bold colours and brush strokes. Now the city of Toledo in central Spain is marking the 400th anniversary of the death of its most famous son with a series of exhibitions, conferences and concerts in the walled, medieval city as well as in Madrid.

Tourists pose for a picture outside the Las Ventas bullring in Madrid September 4, 2013. Sunseekers spurning unrest in Egypt and Turkey flocked to Spain in record numbers in August, setting the country up for its best-ever year for visitors and giving a boost to the ailing economy. Tourism contributed over 5 percent of Spain's economy or GDP in 2012 and provided around 900,000 jobs, according to Euromonitor, in a country where one in four is out of work, meaning a boost to tourist figures should be good news as other sectors flag.

A general view shows the government building (L) in San Marino August 12, 2009. SanSan Marino has seen medieval intrigue and papal army invasions in its 1,708-year history, but a modern-day banking scandal and blitz on tax havens risks bringing the world's oldest republic to its knees. From its hilltop perch near Italy's Adriatic coast, the offshore banking centre just a third of the size of Washington D.C. is battling a concatenation of crises -- capped by a money-laundering scandal at its largest bank -- that has forced a frantic rethink of its financial model.

France's President Nicolas Sarkozy delivers his speech as he unveils a 10-year, 35 billion euro ($46.18 billion) project to transform Paris into a green metropolis rivalling world cities like London, Tokyo or New York, at the Architecture Museum in Paris April 29, 2009. At the heart of the plan is a 130-kilometre automatic metro line looping around the city, linking a series of new economic and technology centres and more flexible planning laws that would allow as many as 70,000 new housing units a year. The "Greater Paris" project has been billed as one of the biggest redevelopments of the French capital since the 19th century planning chief Baron Haussmann reshaped the labyrinthine medieval centre into today's city of broad boulevards.
