Torino, Cupola di Guarino Guarini (1680) - Guarini's dome

Per scoprire questa meravigliosa cupola del Guarini, occorre credere che dietro la facciata anonima della chiesa di S.Lorenzo, si possa nascondere un simile capolavoro.

In order to discover this marvellous Guarini's dome, we have to challenge our imagination beyond the anonymous facade of S.Lorenzo's church, so difficult is to believe that such a masterpiece can be hidden there!
Afin de décrouvir la merveilleuse cupola de Guarino Guarini, nous devons pousser notre imagination au delà de la façade anonyme de l'eglise de S.Lorenzo pour considérer qu'un tel chef-d'ouvre peut être caché là!

Guarino Guarini, appassionato d'arte e laureato in architettura era un monaco teatino.
La chiesa di S.Lorenzo fu costruita per adempiere ad un voto formulato da Emanuele Filiberto e da Filippo II di Spagna alla vigilia della battaglia di San Quintino contro i francesi (10 agosto 1557).
A Madrid Filippo II farà costruire l'Escorial con annessa la chiesa dedicata a S.Lorenzo.

Art passionate and architecture graduate, Guarino Guarini was also a teatino's monk.

In Madrid, Philip II built the Escorial with annexed a church dedicated to S.Lorenzo.

It's so nice for me to have found this blogg of yours, it's so interesting. I read what I could. I sure hope and wish that you take courage enough to pay me a visit in my PALAVROSSAVRVS REX!, and plus get some surprise. My blogg is also so cool! Don't think for a minute that my invitation is spam and I'm a spammer. I'm only searching for a public that may like or love what I POETRY write, among other types of Artistic Texts.

Feel free off course to comment as you wish and remember: don't take it wrong, don't think that this visitation I make is a matter of more audiences for my own blogg. No. It's a matter of making universal, realy universal, all this question of bloggs, all the essential causes that bring us all together by visiting and loving one another. However...

Some feel invaded and ofended that I present myself this way in their blogs and rudely insult me back or post a mockery post on me.
Some think I'm playing the smart guy who wants to profit, in my miserable and ridiculous gain with Adsense (go figure!), from and with others curiosity and benevolence.
Some simply ignore me.
Some aknowledge that It's most important we all take notion that there's milions of us bloguing arownd the world and thus vital any kind of awareness such as I believe this my self-introduction card and insert apeal brings in.

May you be one of those open and friendly spirits.

You must not feel obliged to come and visit me. An invitation is not an intimation. Also know that if you FOR A SECOND click on one of my ads I'm promised to earn a couple of cents for that: I would feel happy and rewarded (because I realy unemployedly need it!!!) if you did click it FOR A SECOND, but once again you're totaly free to do what ever you want. I, for instance, choose immediatly to click on one of your ads, in case you have them. To do so or not, that's the whole beauty of it all, however, blogocitizens must unite also by clicking-helping eachother when we know cybermegacorporations profit from our own selfishness regarding to that simple click.

About this I must say, by my own experience, that no one realy cares (maybe a few) about this apeal I make, no one gives a fucking shit about it and you certainly will confirm this rule, but you must believe me: I love to visit new bloggs every day from all over the world, I've learned and seen a lot after more than 10.000 bloggs I've visted in three months. And I will, like Titanic's Kate, keep on and on and on.

Still I believe in my Work and Dreams and thus
I'll keep on apealing and searching
so strong is my will.

I think it's to UNITE MANKIND that we became bloggers! Don't see language as an obstacle but as a challenge (though you can use the translater BabelFish at the bottom of my page!) and think for a minute if I and the rest of the world are not expecting something like a broad cumplicity. Remenber that pictures talk also. Open your heart and come along!!!!!

And of apeal.

So you think this is begging and begging is ugly?
So you think this is just copy/paste and ignoring what you've posted?
Think what you like: begging or not this is my form of self-presentation.
You can allways ignore me,
ignore this apeal and give me shit.

But do not bore to come and moralize me back.
