2000!

On the stones of the “Fosso Reale” we can see an elaborate Medici coat of arms dedicated to Ferdinando I, third Grand Duke of Tuscany. The dangling electrical cable is a recent improvement...

It feels like yesterday when we were celebrating our 1,000th post, and here is our 2,000th one. In more than five years we never missed a day, showing you the good and quite often the bad of our city. Thanks to all of you who keep following us!

2,000 posts without missing a day. That is pretty remarkable. I haven't even made it to 1,500 yet. Keep going, VP. I like learning about, and seeing, Livorno.

A small treasure to find in such an ordinary wall.

Congratulations on your 2000th post! Not missing a single day is no mean feat.

Now if you can just keep it up as long as that coat-of-arms has been around. :-)

Congratulations on your longevity! Quite an accomplishment.

I love the details on this coat of arms...it looks like the one thing on the building that has been kept up. And yes, the electrical cord does add a lot - a lot of something, not sure what! :)
