Photo credit This majestic fountain, known as the “fontanone del Gianicolo”, was created for Pope Paolo V Borghese by Giovanni Fontana and Flaminio Ponzio and completed by Carlo Fontana with the enormous white marble basin. The monumental fountain is characterized by five niches, three big ones and two minor ones, lateral, which receive water from the lake Bracciano. Part of the inscriptions carved over the niches is inexact. It says that the pipes restored were those of the Alseitana, instead of those of Triana. The coat-of-arms and the figures beside it have are the careful work of Buzio. The architect was also charged to open a space in front of the botanical gardens with a central arch. From the square behind you can admire a wonderful panorama of the city. Fontana del Tritone – Piazza Barberini Photo credit This fountain, one of the most beautiful of the city, was built in by Bernini.
No size or grade stampings. The registration number is not for shapes or styles. This number purely and simply refers to the company trademark registered Castello. After the registration number was added, an additional marking was included. This denoted varying size of the pipes. In , Franco Coppo came to Castello.
Luciano and some artisan pipe makers put a full year date on their pipes, and I think this is an excellent precedent, rather than having to decode numbers or guess. It improves the lore and value of pipes at all price levels, I believe.

Pleasant This tobacco was good so good, that it reminded me of a time long ago The Year is June was the rainy season for ‘Nam. I had been given some leave time from my base in Saigon and so I went to explore the City, like usual, my buddies didnt get leave, but I hoped to find some more GI’s in some of the local bars. It was unseasonably dry that day. It was nice for once to not deal with dagum water in the shoes.

Roman Gardens were indoor[ citation needed ]. Ornamental horticulture became highly developed during the development of Roman civilisation[ citation needed ]. The administrators of the Roman Empire c. Seeds and plants were widely shared[ citation needed ]. The garden was a place of peace and tranquillity—a refuge from urban life—and a place filled with religious and symbolic meanings.
As Roman culture developed and became increasingly influenced by foreign civilizations through trade, the use of gardens expanded and gardens ultimately thrived in Ancient Rome. The principle styles of the Giardino all’italiana emerged from the rediscovery by Renaissance scholars of Roman models. They were inspired by the descriptions of Roman gardens given by Ovid in his Metamorphoses; in the letters of Pliny the Younger , in Pliny the Elder ‘s Naturalis Historia; and in Rerum Rusticanum by Varro , all of which gave detailed and lyrical description of the gardens of Roman villas.
You should take the first opportunity to leave the din, the futile bustle and useless occupations of the city and devote yourself to literature or to leisure. A garden was a place to think, read, write and relax.

Dating: 41 inside the castle emblem = Only the higher quality pipes are stamped with that date reference (starting from the smooth “Castello” grade). Lower grades as Sea Rock, Old Antiquari or Trade Mark pipes are near impossible to date.
Medium to Full Pleasant I received my first tin of this as a Xmas present. The first Xmas I had after meeting my wife she gave me one of this as well as a tin of Irish whisky. Myself being of Scottish descent, and her being of Irish she felt it was somewhat symbolic I think. I thanked her for it and it was appreciated.
I came to like it so much it became my daily for about 6 months. When I opened the tin, I was greeted by a wave of heavenly aroma. Removing the paper top, the smell intensified. This is what an aromatic should be in my opinion. The presentation in the tin is wonderful.

Castello Pipes Carlo Scotti, created the Castello pipe in , in a little artisan workshop. His aim was to produce a pipe which was technically and aesthetically at the absolute summit of the quality “parametro”. This quality means many things which are hard to explain. It means working only and exclusively the best briar, that is: Knowing how to work at the right moment, not before or after.

Ancient fountains[ edit ] Hellenistic fountain head from the Pergamon museum Ancient civilizations built stone basins to capture and hold precious drinking water. The ancient Assyrians constructed a series of basins in the gorge of the Comel River, carved in solid rock, connected by small channels, descending to a stream. The lowest basin was decorated with carved reliefs of two lions. The ancient Greeks used aqueducts and gravity-powered fountains to distribute water.
According to ancient historians, fountains existed in Athens , Corinth , and other ancient Greek cities in the 6th century BC as the terminating points of aqueducts which brought water from springs and rivers into the cities.
In , the 40 th anniversary of Castello, a new stamp was introduced on some lines of Castello pipes. This consists of a castle stamping with a number inside the castle. The number signifies a year 40= , 41=, 42=, and so forth.
Carlo Scotti died at the age of 86 in October Thus ten years has passed from it today Nov, Despite of this his signature is still used to certify the fact that the pipe in question is hand made in Cantu, Italy. The signature goes diagonally above the bottom part of the 4,5 cm x 6,5 cm piece of cardboard. Likewise is this very signature stamped on the shank of my first acquired Castello from the valued “Collection” series, which is introduced later at this page.

Castello still occasionally put rhinestones in the mouthpieces, just to maintain it’s value as a trademark. It’s not on many pieces. I’ve also seen a couple of pipes with both the white bar and the rhinestone.

Medium to Full Pleasant Ok so if you have tried this you may be aware of the McClelland tin smell, I won’t debate it here, other than I personally love it. You may also be aware that it is hard to keep lit, is a pain in the ass to rub out, is to wet to smoke out of the tin and can bite you hard if your not careful. I thought you gave it four stars? So first off let my start by letting you in on my ritual with this fine ‘baccy.
I pop open a g tin and then rub the whole thing out as fine as I can make it, takes about a half hour. After transforming the black and dark brown rubbery, leathery, jerky like flakes into something resembling crumbled up rubber I then let it sit out on a piece of wax paper for forty eight hours.

It has an atrium containing a pool, a triclinium with views of the bay, and a colonnaded courtyard.
There are also many other small rooms, a kitchen and two internal gardens. This villa is also important because it has provided frescoes, sculptures, mosaics and architecture, which show styles and themes comparable to those found in Pompeii and Herculaneum.
