Serra dei fiori

The "Flower Greenhouse", built in Neo-Gothic style between 1858 and 1862, inside the splendid park surrounding Villa Revoltella, today hosts contemporary art exhibitions.

Last Sunday there was the vernissage of Renata Bonfanti's exhibition "Intrecci", but unfortunately I arrived too late for the banquet, which had already been guzzled up.

I was, however, just in time for the beautiful late afternoon light...

Beautiful place. The light is amazing - even the bottles look so exotic.

A very beautiful light that afternoon which you have captured very well. Le ombre creano un'atmosfera precisa. Molto bella!

Lovely, lovely photo! You so wonderfully caught the patterns of light and shadow — especially from the gorgeous arches. The bright spots of color, even from the bottles, adds just the right gay touch.

I like this photo - it looks like an empty stage waiting for the actors ... or after they've left. Thanks for all your photos of Trieste.
