Il fait très chaud, donc une petite visite au jardin du Casino Tron devrait rafraîchir l'atmosphère. Fausto en parle sur son blog "Alloggi Barbaria Blog" (clic ici) et j'insère quelques photos dans ma publication en écho à la sienne.N'hésitez pas à cliquer sur chaque photo pour l'agrandir si vous le souhaitez.
La Ca' Tron est aujourd'hui occupée par un département de l'Université. La statue de Saint Georges est un des vestiges du Casino Tron, démoli à la mort de Cecilia Tron, dernier membre de la famille, au XIXe siècle.
Cecilia Tron était, paraît-il, une femme fascinante, qui tenait un salon littéraire dans ce palais.
Quelle élégance ! Un bel endroit, calme !
Oui, Gine. Encore un bel endroit à découvrir grâce à la Biennale! Bon weekend!
Merci pour ce billet!
Merci à vous et bon weekend, Fausto!
Thank you for this cool post, Anne. I didn't know it is also hot where you live. The Casino Tron garden looks very lovely and refreshing. I clicked on the link and read his charming post.
Alas, I didn't visit the garden when I traveled to Venice. I love the moss on the statue! Am I strange? I think you know well that we are moss lovers...
Sapphire, I don't live in Venice, I live in France.But I visited this beautiful garden during my holidays in Venice. It is usually closed, but fortunately, it was opened during the Biennale.
I think that the moss can remember us time passing slowly and softly, and also union between human works and nature along the years. What do you think about it?
O I misread "Il fait très chaud, donc～ l'atmosphère". Sorry.
And thank you so much for telling me your views on "moss". I found that your mention of "union between human works and nature along the years" was very inspring. I suppose you may be surprised at what we generally think about "moss". In the national anthem of Japan which is the world's shortest national anthem and is in fact a waka-poem, "moss" appears!! The song goes like this:
May your reign Continue for a thousand, eight thousand generations, Until the pebbles
Grow into boulders(rocks) Lush with moss
I think probably because "moss" appears in the lyrics of our anthem and "boulders lush with moss" sympoblizes the longevity, stability and prosperity of the Imperial household(which also represents our country), anything lush with moss gives us a pleasant impression. And at the same time, as we have been very much familiar with various types of moss which you can see everywhere around the country, we in fact feel relaxed and soothed when seeing it.
Have you ever heard about any other national anthem with a word "moss"?
Sapphire, thank you for your very interesting comment. I didn't know at all that poem
"Until the pebbles
Grow into boulders
Lush with moss".
It seems to me to be a philosophical picture with a deep sense, as what we see is always transforming and the appearance of the reality is always different from what we can imagine; also, there is strength inside a soft cover. Perhaps we could think, too, that a mutation is what let us get strength during time passes.
Do you think I'm right or wrong writing this?
Sapphire, I have never heard about any other national anthem with a word "moss".
If the poet of the anthem were alive, he would be very much impressed with what you've thought of it. Your inspiring interpretation is very deep and philosophical. I really love it! Thank you, Anne!
Thank you, Sapphire; it is just an interpretation. The author of the anthem was, he, really inspired.
Enjoy your weekend!
