Piazza dei Signori And….at Palazzo Montanari, a very interesting Art exhibition “Il trionfo del Colore: Da Tiepolo a Canaletto e Guardi. Wishing everyone a pleasant…

Happy New Year to all!

A fruit salad ( “macedonia” in Italian)…this is how I would describe the year 2018. Visiting new places, finding old friends and savoring each moment of everyday with family and friends trying to understand the meaning of what life is truly all about, was like tasting a delicious fruit salad, some fruits inside it were…

Siena, Tuscany

Life is a journey. Time is precious and everything in it is the essence of what life is all about. Wishing everyone a wonderful and meaningful December 2018!

A thought…

When I dream of seeing places and finding myself unprepared (even if I have already read articles about it!) for the kind of mind blowing sense of gratefulness for the privilege of seeing a dream come true… Trajan’s column ” Colonna Traiana”, Rome Touching Roman history at the Palatine Hills in Rome Because in this…

Il Colosseo e Foro Romano Palatino

It rained all day but it was still worth visiting these historical sites.

A season of roses and the beginning of the gardening season. Summer is the sunny part of the year. Outings…

Doge’s Palace “Palazzo Ducale”, Venice, Italy

Villa Lattes, Istrana, Province of Treviso

Autumn is the season of the year (for me) where the colors of the leaves, the taste of chestnuts and new wine “vin novo” and pumpkins have the power to ease the gloomy feeling that I feel during the cold and rainy days that marks the end of summer. “Festa della Zucca” which means pumpkin…
