The Places I Love

It is appalling to see that more than three thousands of our fellow citizens found the time to answer a poll on bombastic sillinesses about being Livornese and only a few dozens have chosen until now to support a far more interesting and useful initiative.Dutch church, scali degli Olandesi, Livorno“I Luoghi del Cuore” (The Places I Love) is a survey of our forgotten monuments in need of restoration. The most voted ones will attract attention at national level with a realistic hope to get some private or public funds.
For the first time the poll is open to voters from abroad. If you like, take a bit of your time to register on this website and vote for our designated place, which is obviously the derelict “Chiesa degli Olandesi” (Dutch Church). Please be sure to write exactly the words between the quotation marks to avoid mix-ups.

Le cavolate attirano più delle cose serie, si sa. L'anno scorso anche Lucca riuscì ad avere la chiesa di S. Caterina al terzo posto! Ciao, Arianna

Love your shot, the boats are so unexpected in the foreground!

I love the boats too.

The church looks good from afar, but I know it needs a lot of work. This seems like a miracle, that it might get funding.

Curch and boats on the same shot. What a fantastic composition! Going to the website now.
