Shadow Shot Sunday 219 - Pietrasanta

Where can you find these intriguing shadows??

Cast by the rather spectacular equine sculptures that form the exhibition "Lapidarium" by a Mexican artist in the central piazza of Pietrasanta,Tuscany in Italy. A tiny place where Michelangelo and other heavyweight artists cast their amazing sculptures with fine marble quarried from the nearby Carrera hills. Today there are also bronze casting foundries for artists like Columbian Fernando Botero who also has a studio here. And looking at the sheer beauty of the place who can fail to understand their choice off location??

Imperia - A day out at the olive oil festival

 Autumn is the time for harvesting the olives and November is the time to celebrate that harvest and the riches it produces down on the Ligurian Coast in Italy. The streets are full with stalls selling olive oil and other delicious Italian specialities and there are marquees for tasting sessions, as well as restaurants putting on gourmet menus for the day. Mid- November in Imperia is a lovely festive day out at the start of winter......

Don't hesitate to visit if you get the chance - it is only one hour from Nice by car, or 40 minutes on the train from Ventimiglia....Enjoy!!
