2020 Photo Challenge – La Sfida Fotografica

We visited this place years ago. What you see is the protected cruiser Puglia jutting out of one of the hilltops. It was placed there with it’s bow pointing in the direction of the Adriatic sea ready to conquest the Dalmation shores. When we’ll all be free to leave our homes and travel once again, The Vittoriale degli Italiani should be included on your itinerary. The Italian poet Gabriele D’Annunzio lived here. It’s situated on a hillside estate in the town of Gardone Riviera overlooking the Garda Lake.

Ho scattato questa foto anni fa. Quello che vedete è la nave militare Puglia. Quando tutti noi saremo liberi di viaggiare, consiglio di visitare Il Vittoriale degli Italiani sul Lago di Garda. Villa del poeta Gabriele d’Annunzio.

As a child, I spent my summer holidays by the swamp catching tadpoles and other creepy critters or running after wild animals. I wanted to become a veterinarian when I grew up. But destiny turned my life around - I moved to Italy, where I obtained my BS in Environmental Sciences and Territorial Management. When not working in our family-run business, I write, read, play with clay, doodle, and go on scavenger hunts in the woods, followed by my six cats.
