Fabrizio,
I am assuming you had to get on the ground for this shot. Bravo! Love this perspective. Not one that I do often because getting back up is not as graceful as it once was. By the way, if it's just you, the old ladies, and the tourists, where is everyone else??

Vivere Torino d'agosto è un privilegio.

Virginia, I must admit a trick I *put* the camera on the ground, not me ;-) --- Everyone else is in holiday. In Italy in August usually companies close for a month or so and people go in holiday (altogether). It's a bad habit but this is. Lately someone employed in public services (working all the year) started to get holiday in July but they are a minority

Buncia e Massim. ... A chi lo dite !!!

Ma non è bellissimo quando la città si svuota? E' un po ' come il mare d'inverno: un lusso che non tutti comprendono.
