Via Franco Bonelli Both Ways

Via Franco Bonelli is one of the many long and intertwining narrow streets near the market area in the Roman Quarter


When the morning sun shines through the narrow streets, it creates a rather fascinating image of lights and shadows.

Grande Cardinale Seduto

The 'Grande Cardinale Seduto', a sculpture by Giacomo Manz├╣, the Italian sculptor.


 The sculpture is placed beside the Turin Cathedral, along the path leading to piazza Castello.



How nice would it be if all Cardinale are all so gentle, simple and peaceful like this sculpture....

Subalpina Gallery

The Subalpina Gallery is a historic building in Turin, which hosts numerous business premises. It is located between Piazza Castello and Piazza Carlo Alberto and is one of three historic shopping arcades of Turin.


The structure is a typical nineteenth-century model of urban commercial area inspired by the typical Parisian passages and created to entertain bourgeois; it was the third mall in Turin.

Show Off Vehicle

This guy was showing off his very cool vehicle at via Carlo Alberto....


With all those luggage bags and flags attached, perhaps he was going on a long trip, maybe traveling around Europe, which is very cool....
The vehicle is beautiful and looks sophisticated, except that it makes too much noise when it starts running and that's not cool at all.

Candle lights Walk Of The Liberation Day's Eve

25th of April, Italy's Liberation Day, also known as the Anniversary of the Liberation, Anniversary of the Resistance, or simply April 25 is a national Italian holiday commemorating the end of the second world war and the end of Nazi occupation of the country.



On the 24th evening, a parade for the celebration passed along via Pietro Micca, just under my block.


Nothing fancy, just a solemn, sincere walk with candle lights for this memorable day.

There was also the presence of policemen, of course.

Outing On Saturday

Went over to Castelnuovo Don Bosco in the province of Asti, looking around the area and bought some wines. The day was fine, the ice cream and the wines were great.....
This is the photo on the way home while getting out of Asti.

Mole Reflection On The University

It was the first time I saw the reflection of La Mole on the glass windows of the Palazzo Nuovo (The University ), maybe because they had just cleaned up the glass panel of the windows.......

Parasols

Even though it is spring, during day times, the sun can be really bright and hot enough for the people up on the highest floor of this building to put up their parasols on the terrace.

Violinist In A Restaurant

I think it was an opening of a new restaurant at Piazza Corpus Domini, a violinist was playing in front of the big windows entertaining both people eating inside and those passing by outside.

At The End Of Via Principe Amedeo

Via Principe Amedeo is one of the alternate street we take when we want to avoid the crowd in via Po, it is parallel to via Po, one end it leads to via Roma and another end reaches piazza Vittorio.



Is intriguing to live above the two arches, everyday seeing traffic passes under the apartments.
