WPPD 2013

Last year the Worldwide Pinhole Photography Day was celebrated around the planet on April 28th. These are the pics I took walking around Gorizia. Enjoy! 

Palazzo Lantieri was built in the 14th century to guard the south-western entrance to the city. Its famous guests have included the French royal familyPope Pius VI, the Archduchess of Austria Maria Theresa and Napoleon, as well as important cultural figures such as Goethe, Schiller, Goldoni, Pietro Metastasio, Casanova and Lorenzo da Ponte, all of whom mention it in their writings.*

Piazza Sant'Antonio is marked by an airy colonnade, which was once part of a cloister of a convent that, as legend has it, was built in the IIIrd century by Sant’Antonio from Padua.*

Drinking @ Bierkeller, a bavarian beer house (via Lantieri, 4). 

Parco Coronini was built in the late 19th century, within an ambitious urban redevelopment program which aimed to create an image of Gorizia "garden city", a mild and temperate climate center.*

#FOUR of 25 day { drawing challenge } #yourfavoriteFISH

My favorite fish is Dory from the computer-animated comedy-drama adventure film Finding Nemo. She is a Pacific regal blue tang or Paracanthurus hepatus, a species of Indo-Pacific surgeonfish. These fishes are sociable, clever, very curious and tireless swimmers.

Grado, l'isola d'oro

Grado, 20 maggio 2014 (May 20th 2014) 

Passeggiando sul lungomare Nazario SauroWalking along the promenade Nazario Sauro. 

Spiaggia Costa Azzurra. E' la spiaggia più occidentale dell'Isola, ed è  conosciuta anche come la spiaggia vecja - spiaggia vecchia. The most western beach of the island, also known as  spiaggia vecja  - old beach.

L'Isola d'oro custodisce un centro storico (Grado vecchia) dalla grazia veneziana. E' bello perdersi tra campielli e vicoli dove sembra che il tempo si sia fermato. As you walk by the historic center (Old Grado) it seems that the time has stopped. It is nice to wander through squares and narrow streets infuenced by the Venice architecture. 

In piazza Biagio Marin si trovano i resti archeologici paleocristiani della Basilica della Corterisalente al IV secolo, venuti alla luce nel 1902. Sono visibili tratti di pavimentazione a mosaico con decori geometrici e nomi, alcuni sarcofagi e i muri che scandivano la pianta dell'edificio. In Piazza Biagio Marin you can find the archaeological remains of an early christian basilica Basilica della Corte, built in the fourth century, which was discovered in 1902. In the archaeological area  you can admire parts of mosaic floor with geometric designs and names, some sarcophagi and the walls that marked the building plan.

25 day { drawing challenge }

I found this somewhere on Pinterest while searching how to draw doodles. Even if it is a summer challenge for children, I wanna try it. I also created a board on Pinterest where you can find inspiration if you want to start this challenge. So this is it...
