Giulio Cesare


I showed again this photo (here) but taken by day. Julius Caesar in front of Palatina Towers were one of four city gates to the Romanesque structure of Augusta Taurinorum the Romanesque city actually known as Torino. It was built in First century b.c. (between 1 b.c. to 99 b.c.)

Avevo già pubblicato questa fotografia (qui) ma scattata di giorno. Giulio Cesare che trova posto di fronte alle Porte Palatine. Le Porte Palatine costruite nel I secolo a.c. erano uno dei quattro ingressi alla struttura romanica che prendeva il nome di Augusta Taurinorum, oggi conosciuta come Torino.

Both photos are lovely — just different ways of appreciating this entire scene. I am just awe-struck that something this old has survived relatively intact after more than a two thousand years!

Lots of drama. Great photo. Did you do any enhancing in Photoshop?

impressionanti tutti e due le foto, ma comunicano due stati d'animo diversi. La prima mi rende più allegra:)

I want to thank you for your visit to my blog and the very nice compliments you have given me on my precious children. They are growing up so fast and my photos help me capture these wonderful days of childhood innocence.

This is maybe my 1st visit to your blog and I have looked through your photos. You have some amazing photography! Very nice!

Both photos are great, but I like this one best because of the dramatic lighting and sky. Just your kind of shot Fabrizio.

Well, Fabrizio.....a written comment from me is rare, but how could I miss "our" Julius? Afterall, we still use his roads here.
