Villa Pallavicini

Per prima cosa: attenti ai colori, la capolettera ROSSA indicherà il testo in Italiano.
First thing: watch out the colour, the GREEN head letter will mark the English text.


Ieri era una bellissima giornata, soleggiata ma rinfrescata da una brezza deliziosa.
Abbiamo così deciso di fare i turisti a casa nostra.
Siamo partiti dal Porto Antico con il traghetto: destinazione Pegli, un quartiere periferico di Genova.

Yesterday it as a lovely day, sunny but refreshed by a delightful breeze.
We decided to play the tourists i our own city.
We left from the Ancient Harbour: destination Pegli, a periferic borough of Genoa.

Ingresso alla Villa Pallavicini. E' famosa per il suo Parco Storico costruito dal Marchese Ignazio Alessandro Pallavicini tra il 1840 ed il 1846. I lavori di ristrutturazione furono affidati alla scenografo del Teatro Carlo Felice, il teatro dell Opera genovese. Egli studiò una serie di paesaggi che potessero raccontare una storia secondo lo stile Romantico dell'epoca

I just love these pictures, Rosanna! All the different temples and pavillions in 1 park :). The lighthouse is 1000 years old? It look so modern. You know, we always think we know how an ancient lighthouse look like. I remembered I was so surprised when I found out that one of the 7 wonders of the ancient world is a lighthouse (long time ago when I played Civilisation) It was then the 3rd tallest building in the world, after the 2 pyramids :), hardly the lighthouse we know now.
