''Asiago (Cimbrian: Slege, German: Schlägen) is the name of both a minor township (population roughly 6,500) and the surrounding plateau region (the Altopiano di Asiago or Altopiano dei Sette Comuni, Asiago plateau) in the Province of Vicenza in the Veneto region of Northeastern Italy. It is near the border between the Veneto and Trentino-Alto Adige/Südtirol regions in the foothills of the Alps, and about equidistant (100 km) from the major cities of Trento to the west and Vicenza to the south.
The Asiago region is the origin of Asiago cheese. The town was the site of a major battle between Austrian and Italian forces on the Alpine Front of World War I. It is a major ski resort destination as well as the site of the Astrophysical Observatory of Asiago, operated by the University of Padua.
The Battle of Asiago (Battle of the Plateaux) was a counter-offensive launched by the Austro-Hungarians on the Italian Front on May 1916, during World War I. It was an unexpected attack that took place near Asiago (now in northeast Italy, then on the Italian side of the border between the Kingdom of Italy and Austria-Hungary). Commemorating this battle and the fallen soldiers of World War I is the Asiago War Memorial, a monument and museum that is a popular site for visitors to the area.
Ernest Hemingway fought here. In a later engagement in 1918, Edward Brittain, brother of Vera Brittain, was killed and was buried in the Granezza British military cemetery on the plateau. In 1970 Vera's ashes were scattered on his grave.''

Very interesting note about this area. Ware these experiences depicted in Farewell to Arms by Hemingway? . I am more interested in cheese then in war.
Excellent presentation of this beautiful church.

Bonjour, cher Alessandro,
Bravo pour ce choix de cadrage permettant de valoriser ce magnifique patrimoine.
Les couleurs chantent à merveille.
Image très appréciée.

ripresa impeccabile con un cielo meraviglioso e una luce che migliore non poteva essere, perfetta per evidenziare l'architettura della chiesa.
Una nitidezza eccellente ed una composizione ben fatta.
Dispiace soltanto che le auto parcheggiate disturbino con la loro presenza ma per non trovarle forse bisognerebbe andarci il giorno di ferragosto. Purtroppo sono la dannazione di noi fotografi che dobbiamo subirle senza poter fare nulla.
Ciao e buona domenica

gran bella luce in questa articolata composizione dove la chiesa fa la parte principale, ma ne fanno parte anche le belle facciate, il verde e la fontana, le immancabili auto e la persona sulla panchina a leggere.
Un bel quadretto dove regna pace e tranquillità.

Le point de vue sur cette superbe église est remarquable et ses couleurs brillent au soleil. L'ensemble architectural est harmonieux et le contraste entre le jaune et le bleu du ciel est parfait.

This is a very fine church, and you chose a perfect viewpoint from which to take your capture, taking in the sense of scale, height, depth and width of the building. Captured under perfect light too, and a wonderful blue sky behind. This is a great capture, thanks for sharing.
All the best
