Memory Graphisches

Above, Göttweig Abbey (near Krems an der Donau) looks down Wachau valley. Here, in 1739, Paul Troger has painted the famous fresco in which the Roman Emperor Charles VI is represented as Apollo. The abbey owns a collection of more than 30,000 engravings, the largest Austrian private collection of historical prints. The majority of the stock comes from the Renaissance and Baroque periods. Bellow, the Piazza San Marco, exactly as I have seen before my last caressed metempsychosis.
