1036. I Tabià di Coi, Zoldo di Cadore, Val Zoldana, province of Belluno, Veneto.
“Tabià” are rural and productive buildings formed by a shed/hayloft plant (with the shed - generally a masonry - on the ground floor and the woody hayloft on
the first floor). They are considered very valuable, able to bestow a strong character to the area by recovering the image (not
only the visual and landscape one) connected to the history and to the origins. [http://www.alpcity.it/]

1039. Gran Paradiso 4061m and Ghiacciaio della Tribolazione (Tribolazione Glacier) seen from north-east (from Money Bivouac).
Gran Paradiso is the highest mountain entirely in the italian territory. The massif is divided between the Regions of Piedmont (south) and Aosta Valley (north). Among all the glaciers that surround this magnificent mountain, Tribolazione Glacier is the largest and, maybe, the most beautiful. Its area is about 5,5 square kilometres and its name ("tribolazione" means "tribulation") maybe derives from its aspect, extremely tormented. Despite of what you can imagine, seeing this photo, reaching the top of Gran Paradiso is quite simple: the normal route climbs up the west side of the mountain.

Manarola, Cinque Terre, Liguria

This is my first contribution in this section, I hope I've respected every rule

Manarola is the 4th of the Cinque Terre (coming from Genova). Picture is taken from top of the village, and shows the railway station, built between 1874 and 1920. Although the railway has deeply modified the natural shape of the coast, I think that it is really well inserted in the natural landscape.
The train is an Intercity from Livorno to Milan but in this area the railway is also very important for tourism and local traffic.

1041. The Castelvecchio Bridge, Verona, Veneto.
The Castelvecchio Bridge (Italian: Ponte di Castelvecchio) or Scaliger Bridge (Italian: Ponte Scaligero) is a fortified bridge in Verona, northern Italy, over the Adige River. The segmental arch bridge featured the world's largest span (48.70 m) at the time of its construction (XIV century).

It was built (most likely in 1354-1356) by Cangrande II della Scala, to grant him a safe way of escape from the annexed eponymous castle in the event of a rebellion of the population against his tyrannic rule. The solidity of the construction allowed it to resist untouched until, in the late 18th century, the French troops destroyed the tower on the left bank (although it probably dated from the occupation of Verona by the Visconti or the Republic of Venice).

The bridge was however totally destroyed, along with the Ponte Pietra, by the retreating German troops on April 24, 1945. A faithful reconstruction begun in 1949 and was finished in 1951, with the exception of the left tower.

Castel Sant'Angelo, Rome

An "easy" picture: at sunset, within no more than 15 minutes, Rome's sky turns into blue, and then into black. If you are along River Tevere, it is quite easy to shot an impressive picture... or even a full sequence, as the light changes very quickly.

With Sistina Chapel is often nice . . . too nice if you ask me.

I also like the Genovese part of Italy learnt all from Rome.

The last part of my journey in Italy ended in Pompeii.

Rome is blissful.
