Dog In The Church

Once it was not allowed to bring in dogs ( or any kind of animals, I guess ) in a chucrh, but now, it is not uncommon to see people bring in their dogs into the church, even a big one like this one.....

Perhaps there are lesser people going to churches, so the rule has been relaxed?

Football Fans Tragic

During the final of champions league, fans were super excited, a big screen was set up in piazza San Carlo to show the match in the evening, however by noon, there were already fans gathered in front of the screen taking up position.


Also bars had provided viewing of the match with their huge TV setup, usually outside just in front of the bar, like this one at via Monte Di Pieta, fans were sitting on the other side of the street to wait for the screening on the Tv at the bar on the other side.


 The excitement of a fan

 

 At noon, under the hot sun, fans were already taking up positions in front of the big screen


However, the poor organization, security plus human paranoia caused the event to be ended in tragic, 1526 injured and 1 dead.

Is Sunny Day

Getting hot in Turin, the air is dry and hot, and got me sick for a couple of days.....
The good side of having sunny days is that on the street everything looks brighter and the views are clearer, and at this time of the year, the colors are richer....



A view at Porta Palatina, bright and vivid.
