Ever wondered where all those classical statues come from? Well, I'm here to put you out of your misery. The classical statue shop of course.
The evidence is incontrovertable - they come from the S14, the old main road between Trieste and Venice.
While strolling around, traying to find the Roman sepulcture, I've took the picture of this beautiful small chapel which is situated in Via Roma, right next to the Archaeological Museum. Later on, I find out it is the chapel dedicated to San Antonio, and was built in between 17th and 18th century in a Baroque style..
On the other side of the superstrada, about 30kms west of the Aquileia turnoff, there were more "takeaway" statues.
All this neoclassical art in one spot, it was too much for me. I wonder if that's how they sold them in Roman times?
Ever wondered what to do with that cast-off muffler? Sick of all that metallic junk in the backyard? Well, here's your answer, turn them into works of art.
This extraordinary display at a muffler store a couple of kilometres closer to Portogruaro can't fail to attract your attention, love it or hate it. Me, I couldn't get enough of it.
The Don Quixote lookalike or the Laurel and Hardy in the small car behind; this artist had imagination. I would also call this neo-classical art!
