PPAC: Italian stone art and more

I posted Slovenia when I was in Italy and now I’m posting Italy from Slovenia. Best of both worlds.










First of all, I will have cut back my proverbial 20 photos per post now that I’m travelling. Not only I’m busy, but this laptop editing sucks plenty, WordPress keeps signing me out of my own blog and I have to keep logging in, and also I’m nearing 95% capacity, so I’ll have to start thinking about and getting ready my next one, blog No. 6.

These I had selected for today before I left, a mixed offering of public art in stone and some other materials, all from 2015 and 2017, Lazio, Umbria and Tuscany represented. In one case I’m cheating. It’s not visible from the street, you need to pay to enter the Park of Monsters in Bomarzo. But she was giving me an ugly look and I had to include her.

The post is for Cee’s and Marsha’s Photographing Public Art Challenge (PPAC), its fifth edition. Marsha is the host this week and I really love the photos of her husband with Alfred. 🙂

Be well and don’t worry if I’m missing on your blog. I’ll catch up.

      1. Beautiful photographs Manja as always. Makes me want to travel to Italy. I dropped a coin at Trevi fountain the last time I was there…who knows when I can return. I’m waiting. Enjoy your holidays. Mine come to an end today. Am flying back this evening. You have fun. Will check out the posts I’ve missed🙂.

        1. Yesss, you dropped a coin! 🙂 Thank you, Smitha. You’re still young. 😉 I hope you had lovely holidays. Mine started yesterday with the whole day of rain. I thought of your monsoons. Sunny today and I’m off to get my first dose of vaccine.


      2. Lovely gallery as usual Manja…one question?
        Is it safe to travel now to Tuscany/Florence area?
        planning to go there in Summer break here in Germany so I was wondering if it would be worth it…you know, traveling with a kid…:-)

        Have fun and stay safe!

        1. Thank you, Just Blue! Well, I’d say it’s quite safe. As we passed Florence on the way to Slovenia on Saturday, there were some works on the highway and we had to go around and it was time-consuming and lines were forming, so there are quite some tourists. It can be quite hot though, be prepared for that. I’ll be back in the middle of August. Welcome!

        1. Thank you, Sarah! I remember your elephant post, those are gorgeous art pieces. Right after I posted the comment to your Friendly Friday post just earlier, I signed out of WordPress and signed back in and now I was finally able to like your post. I hope all will be good from now on.

          1. Ah, glad you got it working OK again! I just read and commented on your post and replied to your comment on mine, but I hadn’t at that point spotted the like, so thank you for making the effort to return to do that 🙂
