Valente Celle Tomb, 1893, The Staglieno Cemetery, Genoa - Italy
Sculptor: Giulio Monteverde (Bistagno, Alessandria, 1837 - Roma 1917)
The funeral monument called “Eternal Drama” represents a real Dans macabre, the futile attempt of life to escape the inevitable embrace of death. The sculptor Giulio Monteverde underlines, in this sculpture, the contrast between the sensuality of the beautiful young woman who personifies Life (caught in the moment in which , wearied by the vain struggle, she is about to surrender herself to the terrible spectre who has chosen her as his prey) and the rigid impassiveness of Death which seizes her. http://grabschonheiten.diary.ru/p81440998.htm?oam

Ecco, nei miei sogni c’è una casa identica a questa esattamente li dov’è.
I already have a house in the countryside of Tuscany (I was born there), but it’s not at all like that: I want my money back.

it’s fun to know the pope is elected beneath that.

Trentino (or, in German, Sudtirol). One of the most beautiful places of the world.
