Atrium and Olympic


Same building published yesterday: Atrium. However this photo was taken during Olympic Games (last year) and people could skating aroud the monument.

Stessa ostruzione di ieri: Atrium. La fotografia tuttavia venne scattata durante i Giochi Olimpici (lo scorso anno) e la gente poteva pattinare attorno al monumento.

Hi Fabrizio. My first visit to your site (mea culpa and I have to say I really like your architectural photos. Looking through these I embarked on a trail of unexpected associations. Although not Swiss, I currently live in Zurich. I noticed the name Piazza Solferino. The name was familiar to me and I realised that it was from reading Josef Roth's "Radetzky March" where one of the protagonists "saves" the (Austro-Hungarian) Emperors life at the Battle of Solferino. Not knowing much about Solferino I looked it up in Wikipedia, and found that it had inspired Henri Dunant (Swiss, Geneva) to found the Red Cross. I also remembered that Josef Roth wrote part of teh Radetky March in Rapperswill, not far from where I live on Lake Zurich. So what? I here everyone say - well nothing much but I find this one of the interesting things about CDP. You browse around other cities in the world, and sudddenly you remember things or places or people - always something.

(Excuse me for the long comment, most of which is not really relevant to your excellent blog)

Hello Fabrizio, I am glad I discovered your blog. I'll definitevely come back. This glass Modern building looks very appealing to me. Can people still skate here?

Kate, thank you as usually. Yes me too I ever thought how beautiful should be able to skate.

Richard, you're in right Henry Dunant was a witness of Solferino's battle (near Mantova) and No your comment it isn't so long and I loved to read it (I didn't know about H:Dunant amd me too after i read what you said I went to read wikipedia. lol). So, again, Thank You Very Much !!!!

No Alex, actually it's no more possible to skate because, unfortunately, it's too hot.
