Found for Friendly Friday 2

Four days ago I posted part 1, here is the second part of objects that could or could not be art, depending on who you ask.

For a variety of reasons I like taking photos of discarded objects by the road here in Italy, which some would call trash, and have been doing it all my eight years living in Tuscany. There is one spot where they are most likely to be found.

Only recently I realised why they are gone by the next day: There is a free number you can call for a free towaway of your furniture or appliance that you wish to get rid of. And here I thought that certain people snatched them as soon as they appeared, like it happens with Gypsies in Slovenia.

But today’s gallery has other kinds of objects too. Some are indeed, or borderline, or enhanced art, a rug is undecided, and the hanging key shows you a safe place to park, or so I interpreted it and didn’t get the ticket. If you are ever in Porto Ercole – now you know.

Oh, and if you are curious where Flavia is off to for a year – she just posted from there.

A Slovenian in Italy for love. Blogger, photographer, translator and would-be writer who would be a writer if she wrote. Plus reluctant but emerging poet. Beware.

  1. So, I LOVE the first photo with your beloved rug and thought this would be your best offering…then, as I scrolled through your post I found myself entranced with every single photo. Second might be the vintage typewriter, telephone, and wine – a great way to set up for writing!!! Great post Manja! Happy Friday from E’ville.

  2. You always find the fun in found objects Manja 🙂 I am most intrigued by the figures in Santa Severa castle. I don’t visit much-any castles but this is certainly not something I’d expect to see in one.

    1. Thank you, Sandy! In Santa Severa there is the castle proper which houses a museum and lots of other buildings that make up the castle grounds. In one of them is this gallery which was full of super heroes. This is not what Italy or Italian culture means to me. I was confused and didn’t gel with the exhibits.
