Our lovely postcard from a land well known to inspire love Verona, Italy! And just in time for the opening of "Letters to Juliet". We hope someday to travel as a family to Italy because we are so in love with the land, the food, language, the history and most of all the people. Luca D. from Facebook has fulfilled our wish and mailed us this fabulous postcard of La Fontana di Madonna in Verona, Italy. He writes: Hey there it's my pleasure to show you the third most spectacular Italian town (in tourist opinions) after Rome and Florance. Enjoy it! (we sure love this many thanks)
Other facts we dug up: The Fountain of Madonna Verona, constructed in the female form, dates back to Roman times. The fountain, which was repaired in 1368, is one of the oldest and best-known fountains in the city. The Madonna holds a scroll in her hand bearing the emblem of the city and she sits on a base also of Roman origin on which there are eight sculptured masks from which the water flows. The monument was erected at the wishes of Casignorio della Scala, to celebrate the repair of the city’s aqueduct.
