My sneakers and a fantastic exhibition...

HI!What about a new post from my part of the world?

The Christmas holidays at last have arrived !!  And that  means a lot of spare time for everything I love ( including posting)
As I like art, the holidays also offer the opportunity to enjoy some interesting exhibitions...and Turin helds a very special one at present ...

                                               Portait of Carlo de' Medici 1466

dedicated to Andrea Mantegna ( one of the most important Italian Renaissance artists ) who painted such perfect masterpieces!

And so...there I went, wearing my new sneakers and a pair  of red trousers!
( Christmas presents, you know ).

In the monumental  building that held the exhibition, there was a very nice cafeteria,

 Before going out, I made up my mind for a cappuccino comfortably sitting after a two-hour visit through the halls ( Those who know me  know that I can hardly say no to a good cappuccino! )

I spent a nice afternoon and the  walking wasn't a problem at all:I was not in high heels yesterday!! ( But of course I also have fantastic high heels recently bought in the wardrobe )

                                         P.s. a very Happy New Year to all of you!!

This is what happened in Cremona

Ever been to Cremona? Neither did I until we decided to choose the city
 for our usually journey after Christmas

About 70.000 inhabitants, in the North of Italy, less than 3 hours by car from where I live
Ancient buildings of extraordinary beauty 

Which tell the story of my country.

It was the first going-out for my new Obag!
( with fake fur of course)

The wether was very cold indeed with temperatures around the 0°C for all the day 

There were some fog too.

Luckily we had  many places which inside were wort  visiting 

Among them many churches that  in Italy really are like museums, with masterpieces of great value!

It was only on the last day of our staying when we (at last) saw the sun again...
So ... I took my coat off!!

( but I wasn't brave enough to take off the  sleeveless puffet I was wearing underneath )

Hope you had a warmer weather...
