Photographer's Note

Finalmente sono tornata. Negli ultimi giorni ho lavorato da mattina a sera e non avevo tempo per la fotografia. Ma oggi sono riuscita a trovare qualche tempo per scattare qualche foto...

Mestna hiša ali Rotovž (Municipio)

Il primo edificio eretto in questo luogo nel 1484 fu ricostruito nel 1718 su progetto dell'architetto Gregor Maček. Nel palazzo si conservano numerose testimo-nianze storiche del passato di Lubiana, tra l'altro la fontana di Ercole e Narciso (opera del laboratorio di F. Robba) e l'auditorio gotico, dove gia nei sec. XVI e XVII i lubianesi assistettero ai primi spettacoli teatrali di attori itineranti. Oggi vi e la sede del Comune di Lubiana. Davanti al palazzo si trova la fontana con sculture allegoriche dei tre fiumi carniolini, chiamati Sava, Krka e Ljubljanica. Eretta nel 1751, e opera di Francesco Robba, eminente maestro di uno studio scultorio lubianese della prima meta del Settecento.

Finally I am back. In the past couple of days I was working from morning till evening and I had no time for photography. But today I managed to find some time...I was in Ljubljana for business, but I find some time to take a few shots as well.

On the image: Mestna hiša

Ljubljana town hall (Slovene: Mestna hiša, also known as Rotovž or Magistrat) is the town hall in Ljubljana, the capital of Slovenia. It is located on the Town Square in the city centre close to the St. Nicholas Cathedral.

The original building was built by the Carniolan architect Peter Bezlaj in 1584.[1] Between 1717 and 1719, the building underwent a radical renovation by the architect Gregor Maček in a combination of late Baroque and Classicist style. In the mid 1920s, a monument to the Serbian and first Yugoslav king Peter I was erected in the entrance of the Town Hall. The monument, designed by the architect Jože Plečnik, was removed and destroyed by the Fascist Italian occupation authorities of the Province of Ljubljana in April 1941.
