Flak towers were eight complexes of large, above-ground, anti-aircraft gun blockhouse towers constructed by Nazi Germany in the cities of Berlin (3), Hamburg (2), and Vienna (3) from 1940 onwards. Other cities that used flak towers included Stuttgart and Frankfurt. Smaller single-purpose flak towers were built at key outlying German strong points, such as at Angers in France, Helgoland in Germany and Trondheim, Norway.

The towers were used by the Luftwaffe to defend against Allied air raids against these cities during World War II. They also served as air-raid shelters for tens of thousands of local civilians.

State Hotel on a Misty Morning, Kane Street, Gwalia, Leonora, Western Australia

The hotel was built for £6,000 in 1903. It has been closed as a hotel since the 1960s. It is currently owned by the mining company St Barbara Limited and used as a store house.

In March 1919 what is thought to have been the State’s first Beer Strike occurred in Gwalia. Fifty residents voted for a Beer Strike and vowed not to return to the hotel until their conditions were met. They had carefully compiled a list of complaints, including some relating to the brand of beer offered, the price, size and cleanliness of the glasses, and the behaviour of the manager whom they insisted should be dismissed.’

Whilst staying at Trento in Italy, we decided on a day trip to Innsbruck to visit the Restaurant Seegrube which is situated nearly 2000 metres up in the mountains.

Ponte Rialto

The Rialto Bridge (Italian: Ponte di Rialto) is the oldest of the four bridges spanning the Grand Canal in Venice, Italy. Connecting the sestieri (districts) of San Marco and San Polo, it has been rebuilt several times since its first construction as a pontoon bridge in the 12th century, and is now a significant tourist attraction in the city. Construction of this version commenced in 1588.

The Guardia di Finanza (GdF) (Italian pronunciation: [ˈɡwardja di fiˈnantsa]; English: Financial Guard) is an Italian law enforcement agency under the authority of the Minister of Economy and Finance. It is a militarized police force, forming a part of the Ministry of Economy and Finance, not the Ministry of Defence. Guardia di Finanza is essentially responsible for dealing with financial crime and smuggling; it has also evolved into Italy’s primary agency for suppressing the drugs trade. It maintains over 600 boats and ships and more than 100 aircraft to serve in its mission of patrolling Italy’s territorial waters.

In 1046 Orso Badoer granted it to Giovanni Trono di Mazzorbo to build a monastery dedicated to San Giacomo Maggiore that would welcome travelers and pilgrims. In 1238 the convent passed to the Cistercian nuns , but they abandoned it in 1440 and moved to the abbey of Santa Margherita di Torcello . In 1456 it was temporarily used as a hospital and in the sixteenth century the minor conventual friars settled there. However, the island often found itself fighting against the decadence and above all the erosion of the banks, and several times the monks were asked to restore the complex. In 1810 the Napoleonic edicts suppressed the monastery that was demolished. Used since then until 1961 as a military post, what remained of it was restored by the Magistrato alle Acque , but otherwise it is in complete ruin.

Torcello or” Mother of Venice “is the first settlement area of the Venetian lagoon from the 6th century. Torcello became the most populated island and had 10 000 inhabitants in the 10th century. Between the 5th and 7th century, because of barbarian invasions (Lombard and Frankish), the Venetian people fleeing took refuge in the lagoon islands.

The Cathedral of Santa Maria Assunta is a basilica church on the island of Torcello, Venice and is one of the most ancient religious edifices in Venice. It contains the earliest mosaics in the area of Venice. According to an ancient inscription, it was founded by the exarch Isaac of Ravenna in 639, when Torcello was still a rival to the young nearby settlement at Venice.

Sotopòrtego del Spiron d’Oro, Calle Barcaroli


The sotopòrtego (literally, “under portico”) is one of the most characteristic elements of the city planning of the city of Venice. It is in fact a connecting passage between streets or other streets directly carved into the body of a building, typically eliminating a portion of height equal to the entire ground floor. Very often the sotopòrtego constitutes the only access to a court or a small square. In many sotopòrteghi there are often small niches, containing sacred images dedicated to the Saints or to the Madonna and not even small bas-reliefs, almost always of a sacred nature, made of Istrian stone or white marble are not infrequent.
