33. View from Ripatransone over the Gran Sasso d'Italia (or Great Stone of Italy) massif. With its highest peak (the Corno Grande, or Great Horn) standing at 2,912 meters, it is the highest mountain in the Apennines. Just beneath the Corno Grande there is the Calderone glacier, the southernmost in Europe.
The mountain is actually in Abruzzo region while the pic was taken from the Marches.

Nice picture Federicoft. I remember driving through that same region on the Autostrade A24 a couple of years ago headed towards Roma(Rome). I couldn't see the Corno Grande peak that well because of the clouds. I did manage to stop in the town of L'Aquila for a few photos since it was on the way. Btw, I lived in Napoli(Naples) for 4 years when I was in the military. I sure do miss traveling through the beautiful Italian countryside!!!

Thanks Flawda. The Corno Grande is famous for being almost always shrouded in thick fog. Did you serve in the US Navy?

34. Arpino, a town near Frosinone, Southern Latium. Founded by the Volsci in the 7th century BC, it was the birthplace of Cicero and Gaius Marius.

35. A canal in Burano, Venice's little sister. It is a small town on an archipelago in the Venetian Lagoon, 7 km North of Venice, famous for its brightly-painted houses very popular with artists.

36. The inner court of the Castello del Valentino, one of the many royal residences in Turin. It was built in 17th century by Carlo di Castellamonte in Piedmontese baroque style, heavily influenced by French architecture. Now it houses the School of Architecture of the Turin Polytechnic University.

37. Medieval tower in Vigoleno, Emilia-Romagna, 30 km from Piacenza. This tiny fortified hilltop village lies on the route of the Via Francigena, an ancient road once used by pilgrims to reach Rome from north-western Europe. Structurally sound and rich in historical evidence, Vigoleno is a perfect example of the building logic of the Middle Ages.

Fede, ancora 1000 grazie. Devo per˛ dirti che, forse, al Valentino il Poli fa fagotto, dovrebbero soltanto rimanere le sale lauree... GiÓ quando Ŕ venuto Ban Ki Moon avevano tenuto i lavori dell'ONU al Valentino, sloggiando la FacoltÓ. Io spererei di no, ma...

Diciamo pure che c'Ú anche una piccola schiera di uccellini lavoratori che assistono con entusiasmo il nostro Master Fred.

Great thread indeed. I'm loving it!
