What a beautiful capture of a magnificent statue, Pietro! Marvelous composition and such beautiful blue skies! Hope your week is going well!


Ciao Pietro, non parliamo di tempo perchè sono in attesa anch'io in un miglioramento, l'unica cosa positiva è che nel cortile-giardino sono nate le violette e le rose sono in pieno germoglio:-) Ti auguro un buon martedi, vorrei avere la possibilità di dipingere un pò decentemente, ma ci ho rinunciato, mi vengono fuori maschere africane:-)..sono improvvisazioni orrende, ho lasciato perdere (per ora) e mi sono dedicata a qualcosa che mi riesce sempre bene: la cucina,ahahah (a costo di sembrare materialista) :-)

What a lovely sculpture. And an equally lovely day to photograph it.

Happy Easter.

is this Carlo Alberto of Sardinia?

Is this statue in reference to his role in the First Italian War of Independence? Battle of Santa Lucia?

Hi Pietro! The picture is excellent; crystal clear against that gorgeous blue sky!!

The Mayan ruins of Tulum are at Blogtrotter 2 for you to enjoy. Have a great week!!

An impressive equestrian statue with very detailed lines.
Happy Easter.

Lovely! I love the view of the Alps in one of your recent posts! You don't get a view like that in Austria!
I really love it!

Pietro: Really neat statue, so historic.

Carlo Alberto a "garé" son cheval entre 2 immeubles.
Bel angle, Pietro !

I find it very curious that continental Europe has many statues such as this one. Great shot against the blue sky.
