L-A: On display, in Italy

As promised, today is Italy’s turn to show off. This week’s Lens Artists theme is on display and this is my second post. I’m feeling generous (or rather unable to choose) so here are thirty images.














Two days ago Slovenia was on display, and today I simply must make the second post for this week’s Lens Artists challenge. I was unable to discard any of these, so here are thirty pictures from my almost seven years in Italy. Prepare to be overwhelmed by eclectic, excessively full images, just how I love them them most.

I might pop up a couple more times before the year is done (oh, I must complete my calendar!), in every case have the merriest Christmas and turn of the year, thank you for each visit and smile, and see you around in 20/20.

For Lens-Artists Photo Challenge, hosted by Amy at THE WORLD IS A BOOK…: On display

  1. Thirty pictures in Italy, What a treat!!! Enjoy every single one of these displays, Manja. These displays made me smile, and I’ve scrolled back and forth a couple of times. 🙂
    Thank you so much for your two fabulous “on display” series. Very special!
    Merry Christmas to you, my friend!

  2. Oh my gosh, Manja! Each photo is alive with a story in full color and such great conversation points, I don’t even know how to tell you how happy my eyes are 😀 What a beautiful collection!

  3. Really eclectic.

    I ate stuffed zucchini flowers on Crete. Yummy, wonderful food.
    Chocolate in progress. Lol. And those flower pots, my god, nobody does design like Italians.
    Now off I go to my fave Eataly for some ice-cream and coffee.

    See you next year, all the best to you and your family, dear. It’s been quite a journey with you. Keep surprising us.

    1. Thank you, Bojana, for all your regular visits and meaningful words. I’m glad you find surprises in what I do.

      I wish you wonderful holidays and a great new year as well.

      And believe it or not, I haven’t been to Eataly yet. 😀 I haven’t seen any around here, even though I know there are many in Rome. My sister went to the one in Trieste and wasn’t impressed. But I’m glad you have a piece of Italy there to enjoy. (And I love the name!)

      1. You’re in Italy. Why would you go to Eataly?! That’s for the rest of the world that can’t do without Italian cakes, ice-cream, chocolate and espresso. The food btw is ok but just ok. I’ve eaten better Italian food elsewhere. Bread and other products are great but meant for rich Germans.
        Munich would be a sad place without Italians.
        You’re welcome, Manja. The same goes for you.

  4. How on earth am I supposed to pick a favourite image from this stellar collection? The bum statues were charming as was the inviting table for four for the fantasy of imaging the meal to come, and who wouldn’t take Bukowski’s advice (unless you knew his poetry in which case you might think twice)? Merry season to you, Manja. Thanks for brightening up the inter-web with your beautiful photography.

  5. And do I love this? LOVE all the way, Manja! You have a great eye for all these things, never miss out on anything. Handsome priests were there when I visited as well…they know how to enroll church visitors…Love the pot head – and the cow! With a cupboard of milk -a mini fridge? Merry Christmas, Manja!

    1. Hey, Fabrizio, good to see you around. Well, the supermarket we go to the most is indeed a Coop in the best possible setting (next to the flamingo lagoon), but this photo is from the even more local and a bit overpriced Simply. Yes, this recipe is what I meant. Lovely.

  6. I really like your blog. A pleasure to come stroll on your pages. A great discovery and very interesting blog. I’ll come back to visit you. Do not hesitate to visit my universe. See you soon


  7. With the light, the life, the colours, of course you couldn’t choose. This was a fun walk through Italy. Love the pot head, the flowers everywhere, and oh my goodness the calendar collection!! That is so funny. I mean…SO FUNNY. 🙂
