[Art through the Ages]: A beautiful statue

The Villa Pisani Garden covers a whole bend of the Brenta river, an area of 11 hectares and a perimeter of about 1500 metres. It was planned by the Paduan architect Girolamo Frigimelica de’ Roberti and laid out when the villa was not yet built. The architect is the author of the famous maze and of some original lodges as the exedra, with two wisteria-covered passageways at the sides, the turret at the centre of the maze and the stables in the background of the large inner parterre.

In the eighteenth century the breathtaking sight was embellished with embroideries with huge statues at the sides. The garden is arranged with long perspectives following the French model used by André Le Nôtre at Versailles and the traditional fenced garden of Veneto, open through portals and windows which extend the sight on the Brenta river.

[Portraits]: Undici alberi

Undici ritratti di alberi scattati in montagna tutti in un giorno.

Un giorno particolare nel quale camminando ho incontrato uno alla volta questi alberi, sparsi in mezzo a tutti gli altri nel bosco. Sono emersi da soli, senza cercarli.

E’ in fondo il senso della fotografia: apertura di animo e saper ascoltare e captare quello che succede. Le fotografie sono venute naturalmente sena forzature.
