Sundial 16

Sundial at Grugliasco, a town near Turin.

The inscription says: "Libiamo, libiamo ne' lieti calici che la bellezza infiora", ("Let's drink, let's drink from the joyous chalices that beauty so truly enhances"), a famous duet with chorus from Giuseppe Verdi's La Traviata, one of the best-known opera melodies and a popular performance choice for many great tenors.

Casetta molto carina, adoro le meridiane , la Traviata l'ho vista già 4 volte, ma la rivedrei ancora. Grazie Pietro, un caro saluto.

Beautiful sun dial!

Meno caldo, non sarebbe male: 38°C in Vienna.

Wishing you nice cool breezes,
