Street reserved to scooters

 

Scooter parking- Italy from the InsideIl motorino. This is how the scooter is mainly known in Italy. The number of motorini in Italy is so great that some cities, like Trieste, have decided to turn entire streets into scooter parkings. And yet, sometimes not even that is enough: note the first two scooters on the right and how they are parked outside the marked spaces. Or the one at the end of the walking corridor. That guy clearly preferred to park in “pole position”.

Rossetti- Italy From the Inside

Rossetti- Italy From the Inside

All historical theaters are fascinating, but for me the Teatro Rossetti is topping the list. Founded in 1954 in a 1878 building, today it is considered one of the most important Italian theaters.  The galleria shines with its gold, red and bright blue decorations, while the ceiling features a starry sky spotted here and there by chubby clouds. One more reason to go to theater.

A pretty balcony

Wrought iron balcony- Italy from the Inside

 

Wrought iron balcony- Italy from the Inside

Guess what I was trying to emphasize in this photo… Right, the wrought iron balcony. The fact is that I love this balcony, particularly the two candelabra, which makes it look very much “Beauty and the Beast”. And maybe the reality is not that far from the fiction: it seems that a very solitary and rich man used to live in this building. After he died, his coffin abruptly fell on the ground during the funeral procession and his corpse rolled down the hill. Oops.
