Deadlines are ahead -- book proposal, article for the Boston Globe, and preparation of my tour through the historical center with the Trustees of the Academy -- so I will just post some photographs from my travels north last week.

Daniel Libeskind's 9/11 memorial in Padua, across from the Scrovegni Chapel containing Giotto frescoes. It was unexpected to see this huge monument here. 

Equestrian Statue of Gattamelata by Donatello, 1453, in front of the Basilica di Sant' Antonio.

The amazing, reconstructed wood roof of the Church of the Eremitani, close to the Giotto chapel.

  1. What a pity to see such a fine city sullied and cheapened by a Daniel Libeskind design. Italians are quite sophisticated in the matter of design so I'm surprised they tolerated that creature and his imbecilic work to defile their town.
