Social ride - Lastra, Ginestra, Cerbia, Chiesa Nuova, Scandicci by ridingwithcosimo at Garmin Connect - Details
Here are a couple of shots of the countryside on the flat between Lastra and Ginestra.
After returning home, I had some lunch, then Emily told me about her excursion this morning to see the installations for Florens 2012 going up in 2 parts of town. I had a look at her pictures, and decided to go into town to see for myself. Florens 2012 is a cultural biennial that Nicco, Kate's husband, organizes and runs, in addition to his regular job with the family company. It is really fun to see his work translated into reality, and to see the reactions of both tourists and locals to the transformations. Congratulations, Nicco.
An installation of 70 olive trees all at least 100 years old is in place around the
Baptistry in the Piazza de Duomo.
I love pictures that show perspective - the Baptistry is on the left.
In Piazza Santa Croce, there is an installation of large marble blocks that are placed
in a cross, and will be surrounded by white marble gravel. Here, the work is in progress.
