Under the Bridge

You would expect to see something else. Instead I found the local Art Academy training ground, as well as thousands of padlocks and the face of an astonished Beethoven. Can you spot it?

Better to wait

On the way back from my first "visit" to Saronno, after my recent relocation in Graz, I pulled down the backseat of my car, turned to pieces my mountain bike, gathered in a box all the accessories required for long and safe bike tours and took everything with me in Austria, where I put the pieces together again, far from indiscreet eyes, in my residence apartment.

Unfortunately, the first week after my return was so cold that there were even snowfalls for two days and all the hills around turned to white. I could not imagine something like that when making my packs. April days were so hot. All my winter equipment had been left in Saronno and I couldn't afford to go out and take a cold. So my MTB stood on the corner in front of the window, like a patient dog, waiting for better times to go out.

Museo Alfa Romeo - II

More than one month ago, before I left for my "Mission to Graz", I took my children (as well as myself) to the Alfa Romeo Museum in Arese, the place where the Mechanical Myth was born. Quite understandably, my arrival in Austria made me forget all the "work in progress" and only now that I'm back in Saronno for few days, I was able to look into what I was doing before the departure (or should I say ... the "migration"?) and I found some pictures, ready to be published, taken at the museum that morning.

Those who are used to read this blog well know that I'm not used to publish color pictures. Honestly I think that turning these into black and white wouldn't yield the same results. For cars like these color is an essential component of the whole design.
