slide show – Winter Sea26/03/2008
Here I am again.
This new post is about a famous city near Lucca: Viareggio.
[from Wikipedia] Viareggio (which means “way of the kings”) is a city located in northern Tuscany, on the coast of the Tyrrhenian Sea. With a population of over 63,000 it is the main centre of the norther Tuscan Riviera known as Versilia, and the second largest city within the Province of Lucca.
It is known as a seaside resort as well as being the home of the famous carnival of Viareggio (dating back to 1873), and its papier-mâché floats, which (since 1925), parade along the promenade known as “Passeggiata a mare”, in the weeks preceding Easter.
On summer Viareggio is a crowded, noisy and chaotic place: so this march I decided to take pictures in a windy and cold day.
Below there’re two pictures: a b&w audio slide show will start by clicking the first one, otherwise a full colour audio by clicking the second one (I like the colour option)
