from Umberto I bridge to the hill


Back !!!! --- First of all thank you very much about all your comments to wish me Happy Holidays that in fact I had. I took some photo too and I will publish some of them (weekly) on my other photoblog: ikol22.com (if anyone could be interested). Along the week I'll be back on your DP blogs too :-)) ---

This photo has been taken in a middle August evening (when sky doesn't become dark too quick in the evening) from the Umberto I bridge (corso Vittorio Emanuele II). The bridge has two statues each side that represent: Worth, Compassion, Art and Work (made by Giovanni Reduzzi). This one it seems to represent: Worth (I hope). In the background the hill and Monte dei Cappuccini.

Questa immagine è stata scattata una sera di metà Agosto (quando il cielo tarda a diventar scuro) dal ponte Umberto I (corso Vittorio Emanuele II). Il ponte consta di due statue ad ogni ingresso che rappresentano: Valore, Pietà, Arte e Industria (ad opera di Giovanni Reduzzi). Questa sembra voler rappresentare il Valore (almeno spero). Sullo sfondo la collina e il Monte dei Cappuccini.
