A walk along the river

This morning I took a walk along the river Lemene. The small road first and path then, along the river is one of my favourite places in my town. This is one of the many beautiful spots along the way.

Sitting in the olive tree

Some years ago a famous song said
I'm turning my head up and down
I'm turning turning turning turning turning around
And all that I can see is just a yellow lemon-tree
...it came back in my mind when I saw Miki - my neighbor's cat - sitting in the olive tree...

Certainly a music lover

Certainly here lives a music lover: the balcony's handrail is made of two pentagrams full of musical notes!

A picture to remember a man

Today in Concordia Sagittaria is a mourning day: last Friday, the parson, also said monsignore, suddenly died, leaving the community, religious and not, astonished. I remember seeing him almost every day, moving in the town by bike, going to visit elder people and accomplishing his duty. Today the funeral.

I want to remember him witha happy picture: 5 years ago, the Baptism of my son Leonardo.

Celebrating the 150th birthday of Italy (I)

Tomorrow schools and offices will be closed for an extraordinary day of vacation to celebrate the 150th birthday of the Italian state. Today in many schools, children sing the national anthem and wear a little flag. I just came back from my daughter's school (a primary elementary school) where I listened to children beautifully singing and playing instruments, with the school's principal and the town's major attending the celebration.

Thermae Concordiae

This is the one of the two sites where the Roman baths were found. Probably built at the end of the II century a.C and discovered almost completely in 1981. Work is in progress on the site because there are still some rooms with unknown function.

You can read more about this site here.

Theme Day: your favorite part of town

My favorite part of the town is anyplace you can walk or sit by the river. Watching the water flow slowly is a very peaceful sight and let my thoughts flow with it. This picture shows both the river, I love, and the quite new path made along the river, where you can stroll on foot or by bike.
