Robbie at Trieste
Robbie lying on the floor of the Roman basilica at Triest, and patiently waiting for the others to return...
Trieste, Old and New
Or rather: old and older... The romanesque church of S. Silvestro is on the right.
While Robbie and I were waiting outside the cathedral, we had the opportunity to watch this scene: the camera man, director and sound technician is filming a young lady who tries very hard to explain the church’s wonders to a future audience. The scene had to be repeated many times. The girl was supposed to be walking from the door on the right in the direction of the camera; the bag was put there deliberately to prevent her from coming too close.
The tower may seem to come down any moment, but this isn’t Pisa... The picture was taken from below with a wide-angle lens ... let’s say it’s an hommage to German expressionist movies from the 20ies...
Palmanova is a typical Renaissance town: it was built in the 16th C. after a geometric pattern, with roads leading from all sides to a big square in the center. Its map much resembles a spider web. If Palmanova is a spider web, the church you see in the background must be the spider... Yes, we drank our coffee here.
