NO TAV is a movement of the population of the Susa Valley against the construction of a railway line of high-speed train (TAV) Turin - Lyon, in the construction of the so-called Corridor 5 that should connect across eastern Europe (beginning from Kiev), with the major cities of western Europe (including Turin, Marseille, Barcelona to Lisbon).

Oltre alla bellezza del paesaggio condivido in pieno il pensiero dei valsusini: NOTAV!!!
Un cordiale saluto

I do understand the movement against construction. It is all about profit for large companies without consideration for the overall effects. We're seeing this type of protest here in the states regarding a number of proposed projects. Marvelous photos as always, Pietro!


a repost. there it goes again for the no tav stand.

Immagini di paesaggi e borghi bellissimi sarebbbe veramente un peccato rivinarli con la TAV.

Un saluto Pietro !

Thanks Pietro, for your answer.

Seeing again your photos, I am impressed with the mountain and the rocks on it. The castle on top looks amazing too.

Enjoy your day!

ciao Pietro.

Pietro, is it safe to say that you are not in favor of the TAV? Your photos tell the story well. I love the second photo of the balcony--the contrast between the old [and beautiful] with 'progress.'
Have a great weekend!

Buona sera Pietro, conoscere le lingue straniere deve essere una cosa meravigliosa per comunicare con tutto il mondo... ma NOTAV è universale per fortuna.
Bellissimo sabato e domenica :-)

Interesting and wonderful captures Pietro.

Ciao. Happy weekend.

Buon week-end Pietro... un abbraccio!

Ciao Pietro,
allora No TAV:))! É molto bello il paesaggio. Sarebbe un peccato rovinarlo. Trovo convincenti le tue foto.
Baci e buona giornata

I hope the Susa Valley wins.
Your photos convey the feeling of the people.

Pietro, thanks for your thought-provoking comments. I thought, and answered your question.

i like all the different scenes and signs you've captures. Good luck to the protestors.

Beautiful place!!
I hope the high speed train runs other route.

Pietro: People can be so strong with their feelings about change. Both sides probably feel strongly as to what they want.

Short Poems
Ciao Pietro, I really love seeing these beautiful photos :)

It is so bad that we have take over the for our own convenience. Thanks for sharing this information. Hope all is well otherwise. Anna :)

Your world is too beautiful; I hope it does not have to endure this scar.

Hi Pietro!
If TAV came there, much nature had gone?

by the way today and yesterday it's really hot in Tokyo like the southan islands!
I wanna try break egg on the road.
then can I bake the egg on the road?
I think of it every summer. hahaha!
Have a happy sunday!
Hej Pietro...excellent shots

Buona domenica..hai visto che stamattina va meglio? Mai perdere la speranza:-)

Looks like quite a campaign against it.

Hi Pietro!

How was your day on the mountain?
You could spend time in the cool and fresh air, right?
Happy monday!

Buon inizio settimana Pietro e grazie del tuo gradito passaggio.

ps. dei gusti in bus non disputate in tram:-)

Buongiorno Pietro e buon inizio di questa nuova settimana sperando che sia meno rovente di quella precedente!

beautiful images

.... la protesta delle luminarie senza dubbio la più originale!!

Nobody wants the Tav!

Ciao Pietro, buona giornata.
Lo sai che noi napoletani abbiamo la licenza poetica ;-)

ciao Pietro, buona giornata.
The scenery is so amazing here I can see why the residents would feel so strongly about preserving it!

Hope you are listened to!

Hola Pietro: Sabes me enamora ese abtracto que encabeza tu blog. Aunque lo demás también es hermoso. Un besito.

Dos frases para ti.

Ay sangre que recorre veredas…
son fulgores de bermellón
que son colosales pataletas…
para enterrar mi corazón.

It would be handy to have a train line between the two cities, but I suppose at the expense of the environment.

I like that last photo which shows a structure at the top of the mountain.

What are your plans for the weekend?

Thanks for visiting Norwich Daily Photo and leaving your comment. Come visit again tomorrow!

I was just thinking how nice it would be to have a train to get there from Lisbon... ;)

more NO Tav! have they started constructing it though?

I remember wondering about this subject here on your blog. Unfortunately governments "listen" to people only when they want votes, after the hearing is providential! This movement goes away and we have not got the boycott? Good luck! Good start to the week! Beijus,

Hi Pietro, I can not comment on the political side of this dispute. As I look at those beautiful photos I do understand that the people there do not want a disruption of their peaceful lives.Progress, when the country site suffers is not always the best!
