" I gave Asolondo the mission of planning all my tours in Venice, Asolo, Bassano del grappa, Morostica,Florence and Rome. They took care of all my hotel, transfers, tickets and scheduled tours. It was a huge relief to me to just pay for one person to do everything for me. My daughters and I had a wonderful time on this trip and will for sure use Asolando again. They can cover all of italy for you. BTW, try the fiat 500 tour in florence as well as the cooking class. Was the best part of the trip! "

Exploring Aesthetics: Photo Exhibition of Alfonso Lorenzetto - 1 to 8 October 2017

The new continental philosophy suggests aesthetics to become a science of perception, not linked anymore exclusively with art.
This is the exhibition of Alfonso Lorenzetto.
The photos' collection is an internal path of the photographer, who wants to think outside of the box of the conventional aesthetics. The "Nice" is already in the place we meet every day and for this, easily reproducible.

Sadness, angst, loneliness, confusion and desire to break the law, this is what inspired Alfonso Lorenzetto. 
There is no a common thread running through, the exhibition is a collection of moments' perception of the photographer.

Photos are on sale, part of the proceeds will be donated to charity
(Association LIFC - Hospitality "S. Maria di Ca' Foncello", Treviso).
