I found a booth on the weekly market in Alessandria, where they sell kites in all shapes and colours.
I was in Alessandria to assist at the ceremony which the Mayor of Alessandria had organized for Marina Vicari Lerario (one of my new blogging friends from San Paulo in Brasil - http://marinavicarilerario.blogspot.com/ ), who makes excellent paintings and has great interest in this expression of the Arts and in Art in general. On this particular occasion Marina officially donated to the City of Alessandria most of the hand drawn technical designs her father, Giuseppe Vicari, a famous Italian architect in the earlier part of the 20th Century, had made for various buildings in this city, among which the Palace of Justice.
A few days after the ceremony Marina came to Arona with her niece Francesca, where I had the pleasure to show them around, although it was a very rainy day.
My wife and I were very pleased to meet with you both, Marina and Francesca, and we will surely stay in touch!
It is wonderful to meet with blogger-friends, like I already did with Jilly (http://menton-daily-photo.blogspot.com/) and will, in the near future, with Virginia (http://alabamabirminghamdailyphoto.blogspot.com/.
I will be away again promoting wines in the northern part of Europe and will be back on the 21st November. Till then!
