The place where I work

I've decided to show you some photos of my work place. I work at an art foundation which promotes modern and contemporary art. We have a specialized library and we organize exhibitions and conferences. The foundation is settled in the Monumental Complex of S. Micheletto in the historical centre of Lucca. It's a marvellous place hidden among the narrow streets of the medioeval town.

...one of the cloister..
















...a little fountain ...

























...rosemary...















...lavender...


















The complex hosts several institutions and most of the rooms overlook the two cloisters with their beautiful gardens rich of plants, fruit tree and ancient camelias.

























Today it's the anniversary of the republic and national day...
Happy birthday Italy!
