  2. Hi Jean, thanks for stopping by to comment on the post. The statue, looking closely it seems true, harangue the crowd, unfortunately, as you see at the foot of Savonarola, there is a bundle of wood, which will be lit to burn this person. As you see, Christians have made their iniquities, and with the period of the Inquisition, during the Crusades. The main photo in the header, was taken in the morning around 5 in the town of Comacchio, a city that is crossed by canals of brackish water, a small miniature Venice, which is the Great Venice, about an hour and a half road. I have more interesting photos of Comacchio and its lagoon're ready to post it later. Hello and good day, see you soon, David
