Days of Spring
Location: Gabicce Monte (PU)
IT: Ho passato il weekend scorso a scoprire Mantova. Mantova è una città ricca di arte e bellezze naturalistiche, che a volte viene dimenticata.
Essa è la patria del poeta Virgilio, che si ispirò alle rive del Mincio per scrivere le sue Bucoliche, e dei Gonzaga, una delle più importanti famiglie italiane tra il quattordicesimo e il diciottesimo secolo.
EN: I spent the last weekend discovering Mantua. Mantua is a city rich in art and natural beauties, which is sometimes forgotten.
It is the birthplace of the poet Virgil, who was inspired by the banks of the Mincio to write his Eclogues, and Gonzaga, one of the most important Italian families between the fourteenth and eighteenth centuries.
“Non tutti possiamo tutto” Bucoliche, VIII, 63
And what about you? Do you like this kind of trip?
This is a painting that I did of this place. I was very inpired by the place I had seen. Hope you like!
I like painting in the free-time and I would like to improve it, but I often haven’t time
IT: Un giro a Numana, che è forse il paesino più bello del Conero. Affacciata sul mare, in essa storia e bellezza si incontrano.
EN: Numana is maybe the pearl of Conero. I liked it a lot! Situated in the Conero park, Numana si divided into two parts: the first on the hillside and the second along the harbour and the beach.
The coast has earned the reward of Blue Flag, for the cleanliness and liveability of its beaches. The coast is full of cliffs and hidden beaches in cover.From Numana you can enjoy a great view of the entire coast. Numana was an ancient port founded by Syracusans: then it was included in the Athenian routes.It was a colony and then a Roman municipium, then in the Middle Age gradually decays.In recent years,as a humble fishing village it has been trasformed into a modern tourist city, but it mantains a good balance with the historical center. Simbols of the town are the tower, arc of stil unknown sources, and the Costarella, a beautiful alley that in summer is trasformed into a natural stage for art exhibition. Personally I had a good time in Numana, it is a quite town but in the summer evenings there are some events and a lot of tourists gives life to the center. Here some photos of my last stay.
Everything about him was old except his eyes and they were the same color as the sea and were cheerful and undefeated.

Last month I had a good time in Ancona, in Italy. Conero is a promontory on Adriatic sea. It is known for its beautiful tiny villages on the sea and for its breathtaking landscapes. There are a lot of beautiful beaches, Sassi Neri, Le due sorelle, San Michele, Portonovo,Spiaggia del Frate. Two particular towns are Sirolo and Numana. I’ll keep up you to date with this journey.
Sea is so beautiful here! It seems to extend over the horizon!
“There is pleasure in the pathless woods, there is rapture in the lonely shore, there is society where none intrudes, by the deep sea, and music in its roar; I love not Man the less, but Nature more ” Lord Byron
