The best is yet to come! :)

The Venetian Lion

Little divine signs?

At Santa Grata inter Vites we were taken into the church by an elder lady.
She could only communicate in Italian and gestures. Our Italian knowledge is as good as nihil, but the longer we stayed, the better we understood what she was explaining and we even managed to ask questions!
It was funny that we could communicate so well, not speaking the same language.
She really gave us a full tour of the church, explaining everything.

More infor later on my tips.

When I got home and I had a look at the pictures, all the pictures taken from the altar side and the statue of Jesus turned out with Jesus's head uplightened.
It is funny... as that day it was Whitsunday... or as we say here, the day of the enlightment, the day of different tongues (languages).
Ain't it bizar :)

    I am going to re visit Bergamo soon.

    See; oven means "forno"; not "fornaio". Fornaio is "baker".

    Interesting, detailed page about Bergamo. Trying to decide if it's a good daytrip option from Milan, and your page made me want to visit!!

    Dannie: Love the history, the architecture, the great assortment of photos, the detail, and, most of all, the enthusiasm. A joy to read and view.
