PESARO – I’m fond of cloisters, aren’t you? I love the feeling of peacfulness they convey, even from behind a gate, as in the picture on your left.
Actually I’ve already written about the beautiful Renaissance church of San Giovanni in Pesaro and the adjoining public library. However – as I am always stunned by the beauty I walk by on my way to the public library – I’ve decided to make a new blog post (the original one dates back to 4 years ago anyway!).
I love writing about our ‘family rites’ and going to ‘San Giovanni’ public library in Pesaro, via Passeri 102, is one of our favourites! Especially in the Winter, when it’s cold or rainy outside and we cannot take our daughter to the park, we often go to the library hosted by the ancient monastery of the ‘Frati Minori Osservanti’, once annexed to the church of San Giovanni Battista (in the picture on your right).
The library also hosts a lovely area dedicated to children where you can find books, cartoons, a few toys and many “soft” places to sit upon (cushions, one bed!, chairs) offering dads and moms the opportunity of sharing the pleasure of reading together with their sons and daugthers.
Much could be written about the beautiful public library and the church of San Giovanni Battista planned by Girolamo Genga in the 16th century. But as I already wrote some pieces of information in my old post, this time I’d just like to share with you new pictures of that area (I walked around the block and took pictures from all 4 streets).
Actually, I think beauty is all around, if we just slow down our pace for a change and let it take us aback!
“I love PU” is a section written entirely in English and dedicated to foreign tourists, where you will find short report on appointments, events, history, people, culture, sport and curiosity of our beautiful territory: the province of Pesaro and Urbino.
Questa è una sezione interamente scritta in inglese e dedicata ai turisti stranieri dove, all’interno, troverete delle “pillole” informative su appuntamenti, eventi, storia, personaggi, cultura, sport e curiosità del nostro splendido territorio: la provincia di Pesaro e Urbino.
Alcuni degli articoli che troverete saranno a cura della blogger pesarese Simona Ortolani che, da quattro anni, cura un blog di promozione territoriale in inglese con l’intento di far conoscere la provincia di Pesaro e Urbino attraverso gli occhi di un’italiana doc e le sue esperienzie di vita ‘quotidiana’.
Il nome del suo blog trae spunto dai famosi versi di goethiana memoria: ‘conosci la terra dove fioriscono i limoni?’ – where lemons blossom, appunto (www.wherelemonsblossom.it).
