Swedes in Livorno

Detail of the tomb of the Swedish consul Peter Wilhelm Törngren, Old English Cemetery, Livorno
A detail of the tomb of the Swedish consul Peter Wilhelm Törngren (Stockholm, 1733 - Livorno, 1800).

Thanks to the usual courtesy of our friend Matteo Giunti we have been back in the Old English Cemetery: the occasion was the visit of a fellow blogger from Stockholm, Catharina, who has already been in Livorno last April. She publishes Florensics, a blog mostly about Florence, but with some interesting intermissions: Livorno is one of these. Chiara Scura is another blog of her with beautiful images, but the text is in Swedish.

I very much like the detail in this stonework. I don't usually see that in my small town area.

Thank you again for taking me to the cemetery and around town. As Dina says, I do love Livorno! More people should come and discover this place! :-)
