PISTOIA For those who love being enchanted not only by the architectural and artistic beauties of the old town but also by its most curious and unusual stories, I always suggest to explore the city centre upside down! Why? Pistoia is known for having and preserving for centuries a rather bizarre toponymy. Here is an example that fascinates us in a particular way!
PISTOIA nasconde una via che non ha eguali o simili! Vuoi scoprire perché l’unico “sdrucciolo” in città è così speciale e ci piace tanto tanto? Allora seguici! 😉
PISTOIA In un nome così breve, secoli di storia e tantissime curiosità! Vuoi sapere perché questa stradina del centro storico si chiama così? Leggi l’articolo, te lo raccontiamo qui 😉
PISTOIA is a city that more than others had fun over the centuries giving original, bizarre and extravagant names to its streets and alleys. For example: who knows the history of the white dog?! and who has ever noticed the bas-relief in stone that portrays, at the beginning of Via del Can Bianco, this curious local hero?!
PISTOIA è anche Montagna e qui vi raccontiamo in particolare di un paese che di curiosità ne ha a bizzeffe! E di bellezze altrettante. In gran parte, conosciute solo dai paesani e quindi è un po’ come se vi svelassimo dei segreti… beh, se siete curiosi, seguiteci! 😉

PISTOIA “From the quietest streets to the busy market day, from the city underground to the top of its mountains; with my travelling mindset I will share some of my beautiful ‘CCTravel’ moments around Pistoia with you.” – Here is the story by Teija Vaittinen, Berlin-based theatre artist from Finland. #CCTravellers2017
PISTOIA in 2017 was the Italian Capital of Culture and @Igers_Pistoia during the year, through Instagram, has involved citizens and not in the photographic and social storytelling of the city, suggesting a new theme every fifteen days or rather a “photographic challenge”. On over 500 photographs collected, more than 80 have been selected and from tomorrow (27th February) they’ll be on display (until 10th March) in the atrium of the Palazzo Comunale (in Piazza del Duomo, 1). Among these, also some photos shared by the #CCTravellers2017!
