Six Years

Aquiloni in Festa, Kites in Feast, Terrazza Mascagni, Livorno
This is our 2194th post: six years ago we posted our first picture of Livorno on this blog. We have published mostly from home, but also from elsewhere, during our vacations in Italy or abroad, without missing a single day. A few weeks ago we even posted for the first time from a smartphone!
An affectionate salute to all our friends: without you we will not be doing this anymore...

A Tree, at Last

Christmas tree, piazza Grande, Livorno
We have a Christmas tree, at last! It was set up without using public funds, thanks to a pool of local entrepreneurs.
Christmas tree, piazza Grande, Livorno
In the past days someone had already placed there a smaller tree, decorated with plastic plates: each one of them bears the name of a problem still “on the plate” for Livorno.
