Houses of color- Italy from the Inside

Houses of color- Italy from the Inside

Yellow, blue, orange, green… These are the colors that have been used for the newly restored houses in the oldest neighborhoods of Trieste.

Red orange- Italy from the InsideBesides the architectural aspect, which makes them already a pleasure to look at, these bold colors are a statement of artistic bravery.

San Francesco- Italy from the Inside

San Francesco- Italy from the Inside

One day, while I was strolling the oldest neighborhood in Trieste, I stumbled upon this statue of San Francesco d’Assisi, one of the Saints Italians love the most. Even though there are more than 500 temples dedicated to him, he only comes in “third place”. As a matter of fact, according to a survey, San Pio and Sant’Antonio have the biggest presence in the lives of Italians.

Ospedale- Italy from the Inside

Ospedale- Italy from the InsideI’m back from Italy. Actually, I have been back for a while, but now with the kids in school I can say that I’m officially back to normal. The photo above is one of the memories I’ve taken with me from my “vacation” in Italy this past July. I say “vacation” because my month there has actually been a going back and forth to and from the hospital where my Mom was recovering after she underwent a surgery she had to have to fix a broken femur (she fell 3 days before my arrival and was released from the hospital 3 days before my departure, how about that?). Since the visiting hours went from 12.30pm to 3pm, every time I entered into the lobby I was wrapped by the smell of freshly baked pizza, straight from the oven. A pizzeria in the hospital. Non male, non male.
