The Clockmaker!

people from livorno
There are certain kinds of shops that are disappearing or changing because of our technical evolution.

The Sailor Horizon!

(the sailor monument)
Livorno, the city of the Italian Naval Academy, where everybody has a sailor soul, since 2013 has a statue celebrating its seamen. This monument simply represents a sailor in real shapes, looking at the horizon, made in 1926 by Cesare Tarrini. It was restored and now placed close to the Naval Academy, on the sea promenade. […]

Livorno portraits

(people from livorno)
When I walk in a city I always observe the people working, expecially the old ones. I just imagine they have a special knowlegde and they take care of what they are doing. I always ask them sorry to take picture of them but personally I think photography is a great way to preserve memories […]

“I cinque grani” (the five grains)

a little California corner in Livorno
Having a little handmade blog means also to be curious about your own place. So today I have discovered a new place in town called “I Cinque Grani”, a little piece of California in Livorno downtown, and exactly in Via Cairoli. Piero, an engineer from Livorno, decided to come back to his hometown with his […]
