Moena..just a few odd pix

Moena, located in the north of Italy shows huge influences of Austrian architecture, language and culture.  Parts of the north of Italy were in fact Austria before and during the 1st WW.
As well as this influence there is also a significant minority cultural group who speak Ladin.  As a result signs in this part of Italy  are in at least 2 languages,sometimes 3 and although I’ve not asked the question, the spelling of my apartment seems less Italian and more Ladin to me

As ever I’m mistaken for a German speaking person here..no-one would ever pick   me  as being an Italian!
I thought, in fact I am certain I had asked for a small/klein/piccolo glass of coca cola!!  sort of glad I didWinking smile
and here we have a small issue:
I’ll keep an eye on things and let you know if the prodigal son returns.

and finally…dont you just love the colour of glacier melt water
