I thought I’d try to take you all with me on a virtual walk around some place I’ve been to and taken photos. I hope to make this a Sunday event…
Today, as I’ve just published a Weekly Photo Challenge dedicated to a couple of interesting photo’s from Rovereto, I thought I’d take you on a walk we went to that city not long ago. Unfortunately it was a rainy day but lately every day is a rainy day!
Our central goal was to visit the Fortunato Depero Futurist Art House and then just roam around a bit. The Art House was DePero’s home; he left it to the city of Rovereto to be used as a Futurist museum. It is the only Futurist museum in Italy. The city has recently restored the building creating a beautiful setting for his and other artist’s work.
When we arrived we found a parking spot near the Leno river:
I love these old apartment buildings that look over the river…the small structures that you see on the terraces used to be outhouses (some still were in use when I arrived in Italy 40 years ago), now they are used as storage closets.
We went directly to the Depero Futurist Art House…unfortunately it is prohibited to take pictures inside the building, but you can see some in the link anyway at least I took a shot at the roof from the entrance courtyard!
We were informed that we could see two sculptures that Depero had made for a hat shop! So off we went after visiting the exhibition, and found a lovely window as well (I love windows and bridges so couldn’t resist!)
