Antiques in the evening

A few steps from the Arche Scaligere (on the left) and Piazza Dante right after the arch; on the left Vicolo Cavalletto. This is one of the most pictoresque spots of town and in the evening it is absolutely enchanting. I could only hear my steps on the marble sidewalk as I approached my favourite antiques shop...

City interiors, #2

Warm floors, comfy seats and candles for a cosy corner in the sitting room of the spacious city centre home of my dear friend T. She is currently restyling some of the rooms with vibrant colours but she chose a warm taupe for the wall of the sitting room to create a more relaxed atmosphere.

Golden birdcages

Louis Vuitton's window, Piazza Bra. Luxury items consumers - fashion victims - are perhaps like caged birds?

(I am the one behind the shoes...)

Foggy and cold

Out in Piazza Bra at 9 pm last night. Foggy and freezing cold, it was such a relief to enter in the restaurant and feel the warmth and cosyness of the place...

Evening at the theatre

Evening at the Teatro Nuovo.
The RBR Dance Company performed a wonderful show called "4", as the four elements: Air, Water, Fire and Earth. Eight dancers plus a singer (the girl in the red dress) who had the most heavenly voice I've ever heard live.
I went there with my friend and this was our private balcony. What an evening! I so enjoyed the dance show and was entirely captured by the powerful music...

This advertising panel covers the broken profile of the arena's outer ring (you can spot the image of the upper part of the circle on the top panel, see it better here).
In the last few years shis side of the Arena has been used for big advertising campaigns, causing some fair polemic among the veronesi.

How do you chose your "photo of the year"? After browsing through my posts for a while, I resolved I'd chose the one that received more comments: theme day 1st of may, "Shadows".

If you are curious to see one of my favourite photos of they year, click here.

As it happens they're both theme days photos!

City interiors

I want start a new series: homes of Verona. I thought it could be interesting to show you some local interiors, be it a noble mansion or a simple apartment.
I want to begin with this stunning ceiling at my friend's house in a noble palace of the XVII-XVIII century.

Christmas' last shot

I promise: this will be the last one of Christmas 2009. It's already eleven days into the new year and we still have Christmas lights, Nativity scenes, trees and all sorts of Christmas decoration.
I still have our tree in the sitting room because I haven't got anywhere near putting it back in its box for next december...
So, I hope you don't mind enjoying the Christmas lights a little bit longer...

Happy 2010!

Hello everyone out there!
Today I want to welcome the new year with a photo of my daughter, Elena Adriana, 4 years old.
She doesn't know the bad and her dreamy glance is full of curiosity and innocence...
