Let’s go to Vinci for a trip, it’s winter, it’s cold, but when the sun shines the need to go somewhere green becomes a must: Vinci is the winner city of this daytrip, a small town located on the Montalbano hills – and we’re obviously talking about the birthplace of Leonardo ‘da Vinci’. Vinci landscapes and Leonardo will be the protagonists of the following pics:
here you can visit a sort of dislocated museum, in the sense that there are several units which are part of the ‘Museum of Leonardo’ in the city of Vinci.
here you are the wooden series: instrumental tools and shapes, a tank model, Leonardo’s wheels studies applied to a bicycle
Then the series of work of arts dedicated to the painting and the study of perspective:
Here is the Leonardo’s painting in which he was able to introduce the power of linear perspective to go towards naturalism in painting. You can see the deepth of the landscape and natural pose of the characters by looking at it moving to the right, from Mary’s point of view: if you do so, you can enjoy the very point of view and right perspective:
It’s 23rd November, this month has already gone and I haven’t realized it yet. But somebody else noticed it. Just after some weeks spent at work by going to some places because of some events and fairies, or working into the office, it’s time to have my little break.
Why not spending some days out of the city and go to Naples.
Et voilà.. it’s Xmas
Here you are some photos taken by Via Roma, going towards Piazza del Plebiscito:
Nice Xmas lights all around, weird Xmas lights, those kind of Xmas lights you can only see in Naples.
And here you are the best ones:
shopping bags or girls with bags in their shopping time
and then the best of all, the image that its the typical representation on Naples style and flavor and tradition for everybody in the world: the ‘sfogliatella napoletana’
If you have some days to spend somewhere, discover this city and its beautiful and weird traditions!
