SUNDAY WHEATHER REPORT : a garden is the best alternative therapy

fioriscono i girasoli
ma il primo temporale
ne fa cadere alcuni

stanno ora appesi 
al muro del magazzino
raccolti in mazzo
legati con lo spago

in attesa come gli altri
di nutrire con le loro sementi
i passeri e le cinciallegre

sunflowers bloom
in the summertime
but the storm
made down some

now they hang upsidedown
tied up with string

like other waiting 
to feed the sparrows

Sunday Wheather Report : two months of lockdown

sunday wheather report : week five of covid-19 lockdown

my last photograph of venice rialto bridge taken at noon march 7, 2020 before the lockdown



This is a dream I made during these days of lockdown. In short I am on way going shopping at the supermarket but just all of a sudden I realize I do not wear face mask I forgot at home. Then I go home and tell to my mother “I am back just because I forgot the mask“.


You may say : what is so odd about that?


Yeah, well, I found inusual to disregard the existing rules about lockdown covid-19 but instead I think it is natural to talk to my mother died about twenty years ago.

thanks everybody
i love you all
stay tuned!

Silent Spring in Venice


In the deserted city. Venice waterbus running without passengers,
the railroad station seen at noon without people at the same time

Sighs, while thoughtful cat walk alone.

SUNDAY WHEATHER REPORT : Wolfang Amadeus Mozart was here two hundred years ago

Carnival in Venice is just around the corner. After the big flood and fear of contagion people come back to find these carnival days, it is a good news because the mask has win against the “mask”.

Anyway I have found this label on the wall, the sign says “Here stayed a 15 years old Wolfang Amadeus Mozart during Carnival 1771 having fun.” All right, you would say, what’s the scoop? Venice the city is full of memorie like that.




So here are the pictures of “view from the bridge” series… oh I forgot : the house where Mozart was is at “Ponte dei barcaroli o dei cuoridoro” ( translation: gondoliers bridge hearts of gold ) and the cat was looking near the Tintoretto house.
