The Magic of the Cities.

Zen promotes the rediscovery of the obvious, which is so often lost in its familiarity and simplicity. It sees the miraculous in the common and magic in our everyday surroundings. When we are not rushed, and our minds are unclouded by conceptualizations, a veil will sometimes drop, introducing the viewer to a world unseen since childhood. ~ John Greer

Moments of Venice III

Il Caffè Florian
Opened in 1720 in Piazza San Marco in Venice, Caffè Florian is Italy’s oldest Café. While seated in one of the café’s frescoed rooms or outside listening to the orchestra in the Piazza, one can enjoy impeccable service and products of the finest quality.
Famous for its rich history as a crossroads of art, culture, politics and entertainment, today the Florian is also known for its elegant trademark products: coffee, teas, chocolates, cookies, porcelains, and design objects. The Florian Gourmet, Lifestyle, and Design collections are available for sale at exclusive trademark boutiques and online at Caffè Florian.

March Theme Day - Cafe Chairs

Please, give a look on Cafe Chairs all around the World.

Just stunning photo, Carraol! Very classic and elegant. Remember me the film of Visconti, "Morte em Veneza." A wonderful film, one of my preferred.
