Sundial 9



Sundial on the medieval bell tower of the church of San Cassiano, in the town of Grugliasco (Turin), designed during the restoration works in 1996.
The inscription says: "Sine sole sileo" ("Without the sun I remain silent").

Nice one!
Always good to have a clock next to the sundial for back-up.
This old one is a good reminder that once not many people had a watch on their wrist.

Trovo romantico e armonioso lo scandire del tempo con il sole.
Ottimi scatti Pietro.... un saluto e buona giornata!

How cool!

That's fascinating. The structure is very much like the clock tower in Waterbury, which is modeled after a clock tower in Italy....

Ciao Pietro, io sto bene e tu? :-)
sai mi viene in mente quella canzone di Claudio Baglioni:-)
A volte bisogna racchiudere in fondo in fondo le proprie malinconie ed affrontare il viaggio della vita con un sorriso..almeno ci provo:-)
Buon venerdi.

Pietro,
Very impressive the bell tower with a wonderful medieval character! The inscription is perfect to sum up me: Sine sole sileo. I truly LOVE it, I am silent if I can't see sun or sunlight.

On a side note, its wonderful to read your comment (left on my recent post), thanks very much Pietro. What would my life be like without my readers' thoughts?! Best wishes for a nice Friday to you while we are enjoying our (Sweet Festival) holidays until next Mon.

:)

Ciao Pietro, buon fine settimana con un sorriso, maestoso, come le nostre montagne, riservato, come le persone magnifiche che ho conosciuto qui.

Un saluto e Buon week-end Pietro !

Hi Pietro! I’m back!! One week off, one week to deal with the mess created by the absence, a birthday almost no one noticed and a weekend to rest a little bit...

Fabulous sundial!!

Meanwhile Blogtrotter Two is enjoying a fabulous hotel: the Cala di Volpe in Costa Smeralda!! Enjoy, comment and have a great weekend!

I like sundials, and the saying is very true, because we would not be alive without the sun! A very ingenious way to tell the time. I t is also very beautiful "clock"!

Thanks for your thoughts today, Pietro. God bless.
