Pond

The "Muzio de Tommasini" public garden

The public garden, which features in the Triestinian writer Italo Svevo's novel Zeno's conscience, was built between 1854-1864.
At the top end there is a cafè and a gazebo for concerts, and at the other end there are sculptures erected in honour of its illustrious citizens in the field of culture. It is a little green oasis in the centre of town, where children frolick in a playground watched over by loving parents and the elderly sit and chat or wander leisurely along the meandering paths.
This charming little lake lies in the middle of the garden.

If you look at it upside down it is even more beautiful, because you seem to enter into a magical garden!
