About a week after JPGer Antonio Lovison (Lowison) and his wife, Adriana, visted Fred and me in Siena, we stayed with them at their home in the beautiful city of Padova (near Venice). Captured this shot at Prato Della Valle, an 88, 620 square meter piazza where once stood the Roman theatre of Campo Marzio. The present day moat, flanked by 78 statues representing important personalities of city life, was founded in 1775.

Please read essay. This one really means a lot to me and I'd love to share it with all of you. Thanks.
