To Lucca

Heading north from Rome today. We decided to use the walled Tuscan city of Lucca as our base for a few nights. I visited Lucca with a friend in 2005, and decided it was a "must come back to with the boys" destination. Especially considering I did not experience as much of Lucca as I'd have liked, given an unfortunate incident in Pisa, which I'll elaborate on tomorrow.

I'm off travelling (today, from Rome to Lucca), and as I won't be taking any new shots of Sydney for a few weeks, and I've not taken a computer, I'm not sure I'll be able to post photos. So, I'm publishing some of my art works in the form of Artist Trading Cards. These small canvases are made on card of 69 x 89 mm dimensions (3.5 x 5.5 inches). They are made to trade with other artists, as the name implies. It is extremely bad form to sell them. Any medium can be used, but my preferred method of creation is by using rubber stamps and inks.


  1. I enjoyed a couple of nights in Lucca. There I rented a scooter from the TI and rode to Pontederra for a visit to the Vespa factory and museum.

  2. This sounds so, well, so very Tuscan...a walled town, mellow evenings, a glass of wine....ahhh...enjoy Sally.

  3. I hope that in Pisa nothing of bad happened. Lucca even if less popular than other cities in Tuscany is probably one of the most beautiful city in Italy (or almost one of more I prefer).

    Seriously speaking don't forget, next time, to visit Trieste. Quite forgotten by traditional tourist trip, it deserve to bo visited. Then, talking about Capitals and considering that each Capital in each country *has* to be beautiful because Capital, next time don't forget Torino: the *first* Capital of Italy (you've seen just the second...) ;-)
