Sundial in Udine

Sundial in Udine, Italy

On my urban walk through Udine I come across this sundial. I like the modern style. Unfortunately I don’t know the meaning of Nulla Fluat Quin Doctura. It sounds like you should teach them, there is no flow. Which flow?

Sundial in Merano

Sundial in Merano, Italy

While I walked through Merano in Italy, I came across this sundial. I was impressed how many elements and codes are compiled in this depiction. For example one can see the motto of Friedrich III. (AEIOU) as well as a skull with an hour glass on top of it.

Bridge of Sighs in Venice

View from inside the Bridge of Sighs in Venice, Italy

While taking the tour around the Doge’s Palace (Palazzo Ducale) I crossed the Bridge of Sighs (Ponte dei Sospiri). Standing inside the bridge I took this pic. In former times, prisoners went via this bridge to their cells. So this view of Venice was probably their last one, for a long time.

Fish market hall of Udine

Former fish market hall of Udine, Italy

The former fish market hall of Udine offers both details I’m fond of Udine: Beautiful drawings below the roof and an artful smithery at the window and gates.
