You Are Invited to the First Lomowalk in Como!

2018-02-13 9


On Saturday, 17 February 2018, I'll be happy to meet you at the central square of city Como (in the North of Italy) for a LomoWalk. Como is the home of the great scientist Alessandro Volta, inventor of the electrical battery— an indispensable component for our lovely LC-A!

I'll wait for you from 15:00 to 15:30 local time in Piazza Volta near the statue of this great scientist. Then, we'll visit the main places dedicated to Volta around town:

  • "Volta Temple", which was built in 1928 to preserve his scientific tools and documents
  • "Life Electric”, a contemporary sculpture by Daniel Libeskind, located at the very end of the Diga Foranea pier
  • His native house in the old town
  • Torre Gattoni, the place where he worked on his first science experiments.
  • The Statue of Alessandro Volta, inaugurated in 1838

Stay tuned on this page: In case of bad weather, I'll inform you about the new date of the event!

Lomo On!

    Well, sounds interesting ... I must have a look if I can catch a train on Saturday from Zurich in the morning (for a reasonable price) to arrive in Como for 15h... and back home afterwards ;)

    @aronne La replico al 100%. Magari tra due settimane, ti terrò informato! Intanto domani sarò in Piazza Volta ugualmente. In caso di brutto tempo postero' nuove info QUI domattina!

    ... comunque scattare sotto la pioggia è bello: pensa al capolavoro "Bad Weather" di Martin Parr!
