A re-post of an image I captured in the gorgeous Italian city of Padua. This couple is seated by the moat that surrounds the island of Prato Della Valle, an enormous square. Seventy-eight statues, representing important people of that city, skirt the moat.

    You're in my city, this square is the largest in Italy and the second in Europe. E 'often present in my photos in JPG. In this regard, in my past is just the building visible in this beautiful picture, with the monument to Dante Alighieri behind the two statues in the foreground. Thanks for the tribute!

    Skirt is a great way of describing these ancient wonders as they surround the moat. The old garb on these figures could certainly be described as skirts. Such a sweet capture of a magical moment in a charming place.
