This short post brings me back to the summer of 2015 on a scorching hot July afternoon in Torino. That was still in the first months of my photography passion and I was experimenting with various camera settings and photoshop filters and in retrospect I am quite happy how this photo came out. Together with the Chorus of the Slaves from Nabucco that I specifically chose, piazza San Carlo – one of the main squares in Torino – is a living memory of the Italian “Risorgimento”: the period in the mid 19th century that saw big changes and “revival” in the population eventually leading to the unification of Italy. As you might have noticed also my blog is enjoying a revival with its new facelift (a.k.a. WordPress theme) so I decided it’s a good moment to combine it with this photo. I hope you like both!
