During my stay in Rome a few weeks back we spent one afternoon on a walking tour of the city. We started from the Colosseum and ended in Piazza Navona. What a wonderful photo opportunity and a great way to spend the afternoon. We were also lucky with the weather. It ended up being the only sunny day of the week but super cold. During my stay we were guests of the “La Borghesiana” House which you can see in this post here.
When in Rome, do as the Romans do.... I spent 4 days for work in this wonderful guest house, 30 minutes outside of Rome: La Borghesiana. Really different from a normal hotel concept. I believe it’s for businesses and company events only but they really make you feel at home. The rooms are super comfortable and cozy. The food was amazing. They are managed by Châteauform. Here are some pictures of this wonderful venue.
Last Sunday was the first real sunny day in weeks. It was a bit chili as well, but I still prefer sunny and cold over warm but cloudy.
We decided to spend Sunday morning at the "Biblioteca degli alberi" which is the new park in the Porta Nuova district of Milano, really close to the famous skyscrapers like “Bosco Verticale” and the Unicredit tower. The park is huge, more than 85000 square meters and it also has a playground with all kind of swings for kids. Overall super beautiful and relaxing place. Next to the park there are some nice stores and the Feltrinelli book store with a great coffee shop in the Piazza Gae Aulenti.

When we got back from Sardinia we decided to take Isabella downtown Milano. We don't like crowds, so we hardly ever go there especially on weekends, but we took advantage of the fact that the city was still pretty empty and so there we were. Isabella was super hyper and exited and started running all over the place. Sometimes it feel like she is ready to conquer the world... or at least the city.
This beautful couple asked me to take pictures at their 50th wedding anniversary. These days it's hard to believe to be able to spend 50 years with the same person yet it does happen. I admire them very much. Beautiful people full of love for each other and their family. Also a mention at the location: it's called Mari and Co in Milan. The design and industrial style of the interiors is stunning.
It's design week here in Milan. Took the day off to walk around the city's "Fuorisalone" looking for cool installations and art to photograph.
