The story on this piece is that two gentlemen farmers who lived on adjacent farms in the Italian countryside fell in love. One was married to a woman and the other was not. They lived on their farms until their deaths. (You can add your own details.) Hence, the name, Italian Gothic! I was thinking about placing a pitchfork in the collage for awhile and decided to leave it out! American Gothic already has that prop!
