Florence is yet another of the long list of interesting cities with which Italy is filled.
This week’s images of Italy is devoted to the corageous people of Abruzzo – the Italian region which has suffered great loss of life and damage after the earthquake.
If you ever come to Italy, sooner or later you will come across quaint, narrow Italian alleyways and streets. Some such streets are so narrow, down in Genoa for example, that you can literally stretch out your arms and touch both sides at the same time.
Now, I’ve never made it to Venice during its annual carnival, but this week’s Images of Italy photo sure does make me want to go, and to take my camera with me!
For reasons as to me unclear, many people I know here in Milan deride Turin. This just makes me want to visit Fiat city even more.
Not sure just where this is, but it is definitely in Italy somewhere.
That the Roman Catholic Church paid a fundamental role in the evolution of Italy can be seen from the often opulent decoration of the churches which litter this country.
Abruzzo is possibly not the most well known of Italian regions. When you see images of the area though, you start to wonder just why it is not up there with the likes of Tuscany.
This week’s Images of Italy picture is a lovely atmospheric shot of the city in which I live – Milan.
