Not far from here, in the Piazza S. Teresa is monument to the fallen, dedicated to soldiers killed in the first world war, and it was originally placed in the plaza Dionisi, where was inaugurated on November 22, 1931, in the presence of King Vittorio Emanuele III. The choice was defined improper by its author, sculptor of Brindisi Edgardo Simone, which donated this work to the people before moving on to Naples. Thus, this monument of white marble was moved, in 1940, to where is currently. Remember, that Brindisi this located in the salentina plain on the shores of the Adriatic Sea, has a magnificent natural harbor, an estuary which flows into the coast, important inter alia by connections with Greece, Turkey and Albania.
The mercantile traffic concerns coal, fuel oil, I feel like an integral part of this wonderful landscape, hence traffic through its streets at its Center historic, very simple, but lively with many people passing despite get cold at this time. I’m walking to squares, especially the Victoria plaza above all, I feel like a good time to observe people, watching the children play, have fun, as also analyze how the brindisinos buy in their mercaditos that impersonate offering sweets. I confess that I really like going to your dome, Cathedral, because it remains for me very close to where I stay me, also known as the Church of St. John the Baptist Cathedral, was built between 1098 and 1132. It was remade virtually in its entirety, following the original design, after the earthquake of 1743. Inside one can admire a polychrome mosaic of 1178 and a Crown of wood of 1594. Here, Ruggiero, the son of Tancredi, was crowned as King of Sicily in 1191 and in 1225 celebrated the wedding of Isabella of Brienne, Queen of Jerusalem, with the Emperor Federico II. I have attended their ceremonies, acts religious public in she made, as I have also gone to reflect, meditate, because I love the simplicity of your Dumo and its atmosphere of peace that manifests itself.
