Museo Revoltella - part3

An installation in the museum entrance hall. A rectangular fountain, and a small spiral staircase that recalls the helical flight of stairs in the adjoining eighteenth century palazzo. On the wall you can read a gigantic quotation from Plato's Phaedo. The installation was designed by Gerhard Merz in 1990.

I love the line and geomtric elements in this photo. Did you explore it from other angles? (I would love to see its photos from other angles, please.)

What does "maggiolino" mean?

Thank you so much for your comment om my aircraft photo. I used a sigma 28-200 lense. Focal length 200mm. But I can tell you that this plane was pretty close. I stood on a road just 150 m from the end/start of the airstrip and it flew just above my head :-)
