"Mugello Giro" con squadra by ridingwithcosimo at Garmin Connect - Details
Upon returning home, Viola and Vittorio were at the apartment with Emily while Kate was at a friend's baby shower. I had a couple of good hours with the kids, then relaxed a little before going into the centro for the official opening of Florens 2012, the project Nicco manages. There is a beautiful pubic art installation in Piazza Santa Croce, and the opening was there. It is really fun to see many people interacting with the art. It is a cross of large pieces of marble with white marble gravel on the ground. Kids climbed on the pieces, drew hand shapes with pencil on them, people sat on some blocks for pictures, a cellist played at one end, while a puppet show was going on at the other end. Really fun, and so neat to see all the people wandering, amazed at the transformation of the public space.
A return home for a nap, as Kate and I met to go to the symphony at 8:30. It was a wonderful concert, and we met up with Emily for dinner afterwards, eating around 11:15, and returning home around 12:30. What a fun, long day.
