Abnormal warm temperature in Verona at the beginning of april. The evening of the 9th was remarkably hot and the atmosphere in the city centre was unforgettable. Lots of people hangin out of bars and restaurants, crowded wine bars (Vinitaly fair was on so thousands of people came over from all over the world). I couldn't resist the Fiat 500 Giardinetta parked on the cobblestones...

Today and tomorrow, all over Italy, loads of people, especially women, will demonstrate their indignation and disdain against the italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi. I was among them today and I will be at the parade "Se non ora quando?" (if not now, when?) tomorrow.
This is the leaflet used to promote the political demonstration.
Even Juliet is indignant.

The Duomo is the Cathedral of Verona, called Santa Maria Matricolare. It was built on the site of two paleo-christian churches destroyed by an earthquake in 1117. The "new" building was consacrated on the 13rd of september, 1187.

A quiet and romantic walk along river Adige, right behind the Church of Santa Anastasia.
P.S. I wonder who will be the 250th follower of Verona Daily Photo. YOU?

Church of Santa Anastasia is one of the most beautiful churches of Verona, a masterpiece of gothic art built between 1280 and 1400.
Here is a detail of the beautifully painted ceiling and the organ (1625) of the Miniscalchi altar, decorated in the XVth century.
I lack of information about the sculpture, which was, initially, the object of my photo.

I haven't posted any Christmas trees this year but I do have a few nice pics and this is one of them. This is certainly the most unusual of Christmas trees and it couldn't have been more appropriate! Love notes and letters decorate the tree below Juliet's balcony.

The roman guards never stop working, even in bad weather and snow!
Although today we had a hint of snow in the morning followed by icy rain, a few weeks ago Verona was under a white blanket that lasted a few days. Took this pic in the afternoon when the snowfall was consistent.

This is one of my fav cafes in the district of Veronetta. It's right in front of St. Thomas Becket's Church, under the "portichetti". It's from this word that the place takes its name, but in veronese dialect, "portegheti". It was a bright, sunny but cold morning and we enjoyed a good coffee.
