Fontana delle Alpi


This is the Fontana delle Alpi in Piazza Bra (Bra: from the german breit, wide). Last year I used to come to this garden in the square almost everyday with my little daughter. Being near home we pass by often. You can spot her on the other side of the fountain fence holding a pink sword.
This green bit of the square offers some shade in the summer and it is a meeting point all year round. There are benches and very cured flower beds and atiny summer kiosk that sells drinks and granatine, (ground ice and mint or fruit syrup) such a relief in the hot summer days...

What a beautiful area. I can see why you come here often. It looks like a lovely area no matter the season or weather. And that pink sword!

Looks like a lovely place for a little girl to play with her pink sword!

This is a beautiful place. I loved the fountains when I visited Italy. I wish we had more of them here.

Hmmm....granatine sounds really delicious.

Please take a photo of granatine the next time you and Elena have one.
