Luglio 2019.

2019July

Un mese nelle mie foto:

Luglio è stato molto altalenante in Finlandia:  due settimane di caldo afoso fino a 33 gradi e due di temperature in crollo fino a 18 gradi!  Praticamente ci e’ sembrato di stare un po’ al mare e un po’ in montagna,  pur rimanendo sempre nello stesso posto! 🙂

La stazione meteo piu’ vecchia di tutta la Finlandia,  che si trova a Kaisaniemi (Helsinki) ed e’ stata istituita 175 anni fa,  il giorno 28 luglio 2019 ha rilevato la propria temperatura record di sempre:  33,2 gradi C.  Il record precedente era di 31,6 gradi e risaliva al 1945.  (Fonte:  Helsingin Sanomat).

Anche in Italia abbiamo avuto un (benvenuto) ridimensionamento delle temperature e purtroppo qualche fenomeno estremo in termini di tempeste di vento e grandine. 

L’avvenimento di maggior rilievo a livello politico è che la Finlandia guiderà il semestre di presidenza del consiglio UE appena iniziato,  mettendo in agenda provvedimenti sul clima.

A month in my photos: 

July has been extremely fluctuating in Finland:  two weeks in a very hot weather (as far as 33 degrees C – 91 F) and two much fresher weeks (18 degrees C – 64F);   it felt like being alternatively at the seaside and in the mountains without moving from the same place! 🙂

The oldest meteo station in Finland,  located in Kaisaniemi (Helsinki),  which is 175 years old,  published the record temperature ever registered on July 28th 2019:  33.2 degrees C – 91.76 F.  The former record was measured in 1945 and was 31.6 degrees C – 88.88 F.   (Source:  Helsingin Sanomat).

In Italy temperatures dropped as well,  at the end of July.  We had also a few strong storms with damages in a few places.

In the international political outline,  he most relevant event of this month is:  Finland started its semester as the EU Council presidency.   In the top agenda:  climate issues.

Now,  dear friends,  I’ll share with you a few info:

In Venice,  until 28.08,  a special architectural series of workshops are going on under the name of:  Disruptive Processes.  (Sala del Camino, Campo S. Cosmo 621, Giudecca)

A new novel by Finnish author Miika Nousiainen has been translated into Italian.  The title is:  Juurihoito (roughly:  root treatment);  it is a half-serious and half-humorous book about identity and…toothache.  It seems that it has not been translated itno English yet.

An Italian artist,  Enrico Mazzone,  is working on an ambitious project:  a grand frieze mixing the Divine Comedy and the Kalevala (the Finnish epic book). 

Finally:  in Murano an interesting art exibition about Finnish sculptor Tapio Wirkkala is open until next 29.09.   Tapio Wirkkala (1915-1985) is famous not only for wood sculpting:  he was a master in glass blowing as well.   His production for the Iittala group well represents the nordic essential style.

The above links are all related to these few info.

Thank you all for following my blog and welcome to the new readers!

  1. We had record temperatures here in the UK. I was happy to sit in a shady garden. I didn’t envy my husband and grandson being in Italy during July where it was extremely hot, but glad they could go and work on the land early mornings when it was slightly cooler.

  2. Hello, I believe climate change should not be ignored. It is time to do something now before it is too late. Beautiful mosaic and images. Good bye to July and hello to August. Have a happy day and great week ahead.

  3. There is no moderation as to temperatures! From 32C to 14C – I am freezing! I have read Juurihoito – Root treatment. Not bad, a lot of humour. Wishing you a lovely August.
