This does not mean he couldn't be fined, though...

Thanks, I like to call it "architecturally diverse" and I bet you know what I mean better than anybody else...

Did you know that mantua and London had the same sort of population level in the early 1600's?...Lots of things changed afterwards...

Ah. Something about fog and snow that seem to enhance the mystery of these old towns.

Thanks, yep it's just very slightly larger than Herning!

Oh yes. Let me just quote a somewhat sarcastic local writer "The main colors in Mantua are black, white and any possible shade of twilight..."

A Parisian friend of mine was disappointed by not finding a warm Latin city He was probably dreaming of Spain and landed in the local equivalent of Reims...

Enjoyed his stay though

Another friend from Istanbul said "slightly more lively than ####"

But I still love it!

Mantua looks very nice indeed, it has a different feel to other italian towns shown here. Yes, it feels more "northern", but the same happens in Spain really. As you leave the mediterranean coast behind it can be anything but latin and warm. Luckily, both countries are very diverse!

Totally agree with you, man. Diversity is wealth. God save me from a life with no shades...

Riverside park






Maintenance required



Hazy Day





The old paper mill, I think it's brutalist architecture by Mr. Nervi




Cozy corners












The bad thing about April is grass growing a foot a day... This reminds me of the lawnmower waiting for me on my driveway...




For those craving for graffitti... how to revive a toilet

Fontana Forest, right by the city limit, a nature sanctuary rather than a park.
