Now it’s official. I picked up my first ciliegia: a cherry. That is how they call the pretty bruise that arises when one has struck with the hammer unfocused. Funnily enough, this reminds me of my first Italian lessons many years ago. “La ciliegia” appeared somewhere in the first chapter, in an improvised crash course with Uncle Dino.
The cherry thematically fits quite well to our current work, too. This week funny birds are to be made as rovescio su carta. The implementation itself is not so funny, because the types of stone that we use now in their consistency rank from highly crumbling to rock hard. Despite or perhaps because of that it’s still much fun.
I’m looking forward to Ravenna Mosaico and will be on the road in some minutes. See you!
