  13. All the monumental sculptures all over the place in Italy ! Boggles the mind, seems like nearly everywhere one looks in many Italian cities and towns there are amazing sculptures all over the place. And this one came with a striking weather induced ambiance... which fortunately you were there to capture, at just the right time...
