HFF to you All !:-)   Con i Papaveri in città-

HFF to you All !:-) Con i Papaveri in città- 

La cinta rinascimentale di Padova della prima metà del ‘500 è quasi interamente conservata, per un circuito di circa 11 km. con 20 bastioni e 6 porte.
Qui siamo a Porta Savonarola, due passi da casa mia. Antonio Savonarola fu condottiero dei padovani contro la tirannia di Ezzelino III da Romano, sconfiggendolo nel 1256 nella battaglia di Arlesega (località tra Padova e Vicenza).

In memoria di questo avvenimento, l'antica porta cittadina sulla via per Vicenza, rifatta nel 1530 da Giovanni Maria Falconetto, si chiama con il suo nome.
Da Wiki per le date esatte ( mai stata brava in questo :-) eper mie conoscenze personali sulla storia della mia città
*****************************************************************************************************

The Renaissance walls of Padua from the first half of the 16th century are almost entirely preserved, for a circuit of about 11 km. with 20 bastions and 6 doors.
Here we are at Porta Savonarola, a couple of steps from my house.
Antonio Savonarola was the leader of the Paduans against the tyranny of Ezzelino III da Romano, defeating him in 1256 in the battle of Arlesega (a town between Padua and Vicenza).

In memory of this event, the ancient city gate on the road to Vicenza was rebuilt in 1530 by Giovanni Maria Falconetto in his honour.
by Wiki for the exact dates ( never been so good at that :-) from and my own knowledge of history of my city.

Grazie a TUTTI.
Buon e felice weekend !!!

Si indovina un ponte, sullo sfondo, lo si indovina dai riflessi leggermente tremolanti. Ma la foto è dominata, nella parte destra, da un antico muro che anche da solo sa di storia, in questo caso gloriosa. Che spunti l'erba tra queste pietre è naturale, il miracolo è la presenza di questi papaveri, la cui squillante e breve bellezza sembra avviare la primavera verso la stagione più calda. E' un contrasto molto forte, e molto significativo, tra queste pietre immobili da secoli e queste improvvise e brevi esplosioni di colore, tra il ritmo lento della storia e il continuo susseguirsi delle stagioni.
Lo sguardo rivolto in giù della fotografa ci porta infine alla vista dell'acqua, anch'essa ferma, che conclude degnamente una immagine piena di pace e silenzio.
Ottima la didascalia, non sapevo che PD avesse una cinta muraria così ampia e ben conservata.
Un saluto speciale

Caro Fabio!
in effetti su queste antiche mura e Porta, ogni maggio, ritrovo queste macchie di coloro rosso dei miei adorati papaveri come preannuncio dell'estate in arrivo.
E non manco mai di soffermarmi a guardarli nel mio cammino, direi quotidiano, verso il centro città.
Ho scattato altre volte foto di questo genere ma mai mi hanno soddisfatto.
Forse, sai, ne facevo solo una questione , se così si può dire, estetica':-)
Ed ancora, forse, questa volta , nel reale silenzio di una solitamente affollata strada , li ho visti e sentiti come un augurio.
No, per carità, non voglio sovraccaricare questa foto di un simbolismo che essa non ha!
Solo un pensiero, un'emozione che tu hai saputo cogliere con la tua sempre acuta sensibilità.
Grazie sempre.
Un saluto speciale da Bea.
PS:
sì, Padova, nonostante alcuni 'disastri' perpetrati dalla speculazione edilizia degli anni dal dopoguerra agli anni 1990, ha avuto l'intelligenza di preservare e custodire questa sua cinta muraria che rende così ancora fieri i suoi abitanti.

Oltre al bel riflesso sul canale, hai davvero colto l'abilità dei papaveri di crescere anche sul più miserevole dei suoli e portare il colore dell'estate perfino su un vecchio muro sgretolato.
