Life During Wartime on italianeography
The city I live - Firenze, Italy - in is one of the most famous and visited in the world - and for a god reason - though I am not exactely one who is often taking shots of it. I mean, I do take shots of Florence but not with the “portraiture view” in mind.One of these “rare” shots has been invited by the guys at italianeography.com to be featured on their pages, and I am happy to address you to their excellent and interesting website!
Since the description on the page is only in Italian, here is a handy translation for you:View of the Ponte Vecchio in Florence in a day of high water of the river Arno.The particular time and editing combine the traditional tourist view, predominant in Florence, with the familiar and intimate sight that belongs to those who are born and live in this city, in an atmosphere that recalls important moments of the past as the 1966 flood (of the Arno river) or past wars that caused other bridges destruction and rebuilding.There is some kind of nostalgia, the love for my places but also the difficulty of living in a Florence that every day seems to belong more to the tourists and a little bit less to those who see it with the belonging eyes of the everyday.

La Scuola di guerra aerea

I have to thank my friend & colleague Marco Salmoiraghi who found some shots I did in a rather rarely-accessible place in Firenze that I meant to edit and post somewhere but haven’t yet gotten round to.

He asked me to let him post the unedited (except for one) photos on his own blog - and you should go visit him since what he puts up there is all about beautiful sights of Firenze and environs.

Two words about these photos then:
the Scuola di guerra aerea (sorry, the linked Wiki is in Italian only!) is a rather fascinating and magnificent military school of air war situated inside the Cascine Park of Florence, built in perfect, astounding, gorgeous rationalist style between 1937 and 1938 by the architect Raffaello Fagnoni.

I was able to visit this military school thanks to a special opening day on a Sunday morning a while ago; the photos I have taken during this lucky occasion are of the most casual type - I was too overwhelmed by marveling at the sight of everything there to be able and coordinate my mind to take any proper photo, but you can admire a few details of both insides and outsides.

Thanks Marco!

Particolare di affresco sul soffitto della quadreria di Casa Martelli a Firenze. Peccato solo non poter fotografare e visitare questa magnifica casa con maggiore calma e approfondimento (e non poter conoscere di persona Carlo Martelli, il cui ritratto affascina moltissimo).
