Asolo (Veneto), Italy: It is not easy to safeguard old architecture and art from the changes made in the name of modernity and progress. Often, the understanding that not everything of the past was to be destroyed or thrown away, comes too late. When we visited the tiny town of Asolo in the mountains, I felt that at least there, the people had valued their past.

आज़ोलो, इटलीः आधुनिकता और विकास के नाम पर होने वाले बदलावों से अपने पुराने वास्तुशिल्प, कला आदि को सम्भाल कर रखना आसान नहीं है. अक्सर यह समझ बहुत देर से आती है कि अपने अतीत में सब कुछ गिराने-फैंकने वाला नहीं था. पहाड़ों में बसे छोटे से शहर आज़ोलो गये तो लगा कि कम से कम यहाँ के लोगों ने अपने अतीत को सँजो कर रखा है.

Asolo (Veneto), Italia: Non è sempre facile salvaguardare la vecchia architettura e arte dai cambiamenti effettuati nel nome della modernità e del progresso. Spesso la comprensione che non tutto del passato era da distruggere o da buttare via, arriva troppo tardi. Quando abbiamo visitato Asolo, la piccola cittadina di montagna, ho pensato che almeno qui le persone hanno saputo valorizzare il loro passato.

  3. The first photograph is very beautiful. A stark view into the medieval ages. However there is a little too much black in the third one.

  5. आपकी तस्वीरों में पहली बार दिखा की फव्वारा कुछ कुछ गंदा सा हो गया है. बिलकुल पुरानापन बचा हुआ है. सुन्दर.

    1. कभी कभी पर्यटकों को यह दिखाना पड़ता है कि यहाँ हर चीज़ पुराने समय की है!

      पर हम लोग गर्मी से पहले गये थे शायद इसलिए भी गन्दा था! जब गर्मी के साथ टूरिस्ट सीज़न आता है, हर तरफ सफेदी, लीपा पोती शुरु हो जाती है. :)
