Sapia Salvani

The noise of weapons and arms rattling against each other was getting louder and louder as she was approaching the window on the western side of the castle. She barely slept that night, ever since she heard Ghibellines retreated to the hillock near her house, escaping the Guelph army that overtook the Colle castle thatContinue reading “Sapia Salvani”

Savršen život zove

“Zašto nema starih, oštećenih zgrada? Grad star kao što je ovaj bi trebao da ima nekoliko njih, zar ne?” rekao je Zavierov deda, više komentarišući, što je razbilo tišinu sa kojom smo prešli već nekoliko kanala, posmatrajući savršene , visoke i tanke, ciglane zgrade i upijajući svaki njihov detalj. Rekavši ovo, imala sam osećaj kaoContinue reading “Savršen život zove”

Perfect life calling

„Why are there no old, damaged buildings? City old as this one should have few of them, shouldn’t it?“ said Z’s grandpa, mostly to himself, which broke the silence we enjoyed for few canals now, walking and staring at the perfect, tall and thin, brick buildings and soaking its every detail.

Otkrivanje Italije, deo 4: Un pezzo di cielo caduto in terra

Un pezzo di cielo caduto in terra (Komad neba koji je pao na Zemlju) kažem sebi u bradu, gledajući kako se nebo spušta u more kao u peščanom satu, menjajući se u ružičasto, narandžasto, žuto i konačno mračno pri smiraju dana. Grad se osvetljuje, nikad ne prestajući da žamori i brblja, dok barovi i restorani počinju da iznose hranu, započinjući čuveni aperitivo hour.

Disclosing Italy, part 4: Un pezzo di cielo caduto in terra

Un pezzo di cielo caduto in terra(A piece of heaven fell on Earth) i say into my beard, watching the sky pouring down into the sea like in an hourglass, turning pink, orange, yellow and finally dark as the day runs out. The city lights up, never stopping murmuring and jesting, while bars and restaurants start bringing out their finger food, opening the famous aperitivo hour.
