Parco dei Signini
A very unusual picture today: the public playground with no kids nor mothers! During weektime, in the afternoon, this playground is full of children, mostly aged 1 to 6 climbing, running, screaming, hiding and mothers chatting chatting chatting chatting!
In Concordia's typical style, also at the playground there are Roman ruins here and there (what you see close-up is a Roman column's base) and for children it is normal to play among them. This playground is located in the Parco dei Signini, where Signini recalls Roman domus (houses) with pavement made in opus signinum (white pavement with inserted mosaics). All around the playground there are sites with domus walls (now fenced to prevent people walking on them).
This is were we play!
