PPAC: Sant’Agnelo 3

Today’s public art post, the third with fairy-tale murals from Sant’Angelo, comes with a little reality check. As I write this (Friday, 5 pm), we have had no internet connection in home for the last twenty-four hours. And on Wednesday we were again without water most of the day. These problems are not related, neitherContinue reading “PPAC: Sant’Agnelo 3”

PPAC: Sant’Angelo 2

As promised, here is the continuation of our visit to a town of which I only learned because Facebook assumed correctly that I’d like it. I hope you do too as there will be four more posts from here. Fairy-tales forever! The only thing I regretted was that I was not carrying a child orContinue reading “PPAC: Sant’Angelo 2”

PPAC: Sant’Angelo 1

Today a new series begins from the town in Lazio called Sant’Angelo. Here are the first 15 minutes of our Tuesday visit when uncle, bestia and I went fairy-tale hopping. For Tuesday I had planned three stops in places from my list that were new to me: first Montefiascone above Lake Bolsena (check, the viewContinue reading “PPAC: Sant’Angelo 1”

PPAC: San Gimignano

After eight years in Tuscany maybe it’s time to visit San Gimignano, I said to myself, packed uncle and bestia on Thursday and off we went, after a lovely stroll by the Elsa river. As everything in Italy it was full of art and surprisingly full of people. San Gimignano, two hours NW from me,Continue reading “PPAC: San Gimignano”

PPAC: Tarquinia

These photos are from one year ago when Flavia, my visiting uncle – who is on his way over right now again – and I went to Tarquinia and it was my first time. It’s true that Italian towns are similar and yet each one surprises me in a fully new way. This is aContinue reading “PPAC: Tarquinia”

PPAC: Stožice street art 3

Here is the last part of the mysterious series of photos that I didn’t take. As you will see, the photographer felt increasingly uneasy and got the hell out of there, no matter that there were two more levels to explore. As I explained in part 1 of this series, it is all a resultContinue reading “PPAC: Stožice street art 3”

PPAC: Stožice street art 2

As promised, here is the second part of the photos that I didn’t take from the newly-built ruin between the Stožice Arena and the stadium in Ljubljana where graffiti artists have their picnic. While I’m enjoying Piran with my visitors, let’s look back to mid-August when a series of (non)coincidences brought me in possession ofContinue reading “PPAC: Stožice street art 2”

PPAC: Stožice street art 1

Today starts a series of three street art posts from Ljubljana with photos that were mysteriously left under my doormat. Really. It starts with the sign that would make happy a certain demographic. As it is, in Slovenian pot means path and such signs are all along the 30 km (20 miles) circle around Ljubljana,Continue reading “PPAC: Stožice street art 1”

PPAC: The Three Angels in Maribor

Last Saturday father knew exactly what I’d like to see in his city of birth. He was even willing to call in and grant us access. No need, the angels are free to visit. They are even in Google Maps under Trije Angeli. All father knew was that they were at Vodovod, Maribor, the waterContinue reading “PPAC: The Three Angels in Maribor”

PPAC: The beloved space

In my mind I’m getting ready to return to Tuscany, to my beloved and his spazio which can mean place or space. This is what I found there when I returned from Slovenia last August. I first noticed the letters when I passed Lake Burano, a few minutes from our home, at 10 in theContinue reading “PPAC: The beloved space”

PPAC: Public art in Ljubljana

As I told Marsha, probably two thirds of all photos that I take contain some degree of public art. I find myself saving many for this challenge designed and run by Marsha and Cee who is the host today. All today’s photos were taken in the last three weeks, now that I’m in my SloveniaContinue reading “PPAC: Public art in Ljubljana”
