This New Year's Eve I decided not to move far away from home and for a couple of days visit one of the many art cities that are located in our beautiful country, so I have decided to visit Verona.
This was my last stop during the Bavarian motorcycle tour this summer, but as I wasn't able to visit the city on that occasion due to the high temperatures and tiredness, I came back with much colder temperatures to recover.
Verona is known for being the place where one of the most famous and most celebrated tragedies, Romeo and Juliet, composed by William Shakespeare between 1594 and 1596, takes place. Due to the immense love felt by the two characters of the drama, so strong and intense that they cannot live one without the other, Verona is also known as the city of love.
In the gallery below are some of the photos taken during the last days of the year of this beautiful town and its unique views and landscapes.

Photography is a graphic art with many different facets and each person is particularly familiar with one of them. In this period I am exploring the world of street photography.
This particular type captures the life that flows in the streets, authentic, direct, without filters and for this reason it can sometimes appear crude or disturbing to the viewer's eyes. The first great masters in this sector were Henri Cartier-Bresson and Robert Doisneau.
Street photography does not require any special equipment and can be practiced everywhere, it only requires a spirit of observation and a bit of luck to freeze the time in a picture. For this reason I started practicing in my city: Genoa.
Below I'll show you my first attempts, hoping that they will be appreciated by you.

London is calling

A few weeks ago I was able to visit one of my favourite European capitals, London. Its charm is timeless due to its unique atmosphere, the style of its palaces and the quantity of its historical monuments always crowded by many tourists.

This great city has two souls inside itself: the ancient one with all the monuments and historical buildings made of stone and the other one, modern and high-tech, in which high steel skyscrapers emerge between older buildings slowly changing the metropolitan skyline.

Because of the large amount of places of interest in the city and the limited amount of time I had to spend in my stay, I have drawn up a list of what I think every tourist should visit. My long day began with the city's most famous monument, the Houses of Parliament, current residence of the British Parliament, and the Big Ben Tower. Nearby you can also visit Westminster Abbey and, with a short walk, Buckingham Palace. After a quick lunch at Hyde Park, one of London's nine royal parks, I take the underground to continue my tour visiting in order: Covent Garden market, St. Paul's Cathedral, the Tower of London and the Tower Bridge.

The following day, after a rich English breakfast, I decide to resume my tour from Camden Town, a very characteristic place known for its shops and murals and make a short visit to the British Museum before taking my suitcase back home.

Below are some of the shots taken in this short but intense London weekend.

amsterdam netherlands one day

Being often in Netherlands for work even during the weekend I couldn't exempt to visit the capital and largest city of this country: Amsterdam. This city has two distinct and very different faces, the first of which is tourist destination. This city has one of the largest Renaissance centres in Europe and many of its buildings are considered historical monuments.

The second face of Amsterdam is perhaps also the most well known all around the world and it is the one of a city of sin where everything or almost everything is allowed. Here you can buy and consume marijuana legally in one of more than 200 coffee shops in the city, or take a walk through the city's red light district, where women of all kinds and ages will try to seduce you through their shop windows.

Without going any further, I leave you to the shots I made during my short stay in this very characteristic city.
