A nice walk in Florence.

I was born in Florence in the 1975 in the old town, i lived there till i was than i moved to my grandfather town. A really small town in the Tusany called Massa Marittima. When we moved back to Florence when i was 10 we went live outside the city and usually i don’t get there really often.

Geek life roundup

Become dad is a wonderful thing, my son is the most beautiful creature i ever seen, even if he absorb almost all my free time.


Now he’s 2 months old…



Changing him is quite a task, at the beginning i wasn’t able to doit but i got some skill now ^^!

The thing i feared most was the loosing of all my free time, all the people was the same, ” ahhh no more games” , “ahhhh no more picture”,”ahhh no more blogging!”

Well they were all wrong, it’s just a matter of time and little by little the life go back to normal, not as once was but quite.

The meaning of this blog

I admit it, maintain a blog lively and updated with nice stuff to share is difficult, very difficult. When i started Addicted to Ludus in September 2007 i wasn’t sure of his meaning and how long i could keep working on it since my lazy behavior. Little by little taking time, i found the right timing for blogging and the main subject, games artwork and little of my italian geek life.

But life change and when you grow life grow on you too.

I always do what i like most, dive the net, take photos where i go, read stupid book and play a lot of games of course, this thanks to my lovely wife who’s by my side and leaving me time. Until now.

Hhahahahaha don’t get me wrong, between us everything is fine, the only thing is that our family is going to level UP! Yes a baby is coming! She’s in the 4th month and all is going well.

Mercantia 2010

So many new things to do for he/she in this period and for the mom too, prepare her at best for this epic day is magically hard!

In the passed months i missed to work on this blog a lot and i had time to promise me to keep up as much as i can for me and for you all. I don’t have many readers but who cares, quality instead quantity ^^

Well time to go!

Bye and see you soon!

Certaldo Mercantia 2009

So yesterday i managed to find some nice place to visit and test my Lx3. Certaldo is a small city 30 min far from where i live that every year hold Mercantia, a medieval-feel like show.

Mercantia take place in old part of Certaldo at top the hill.

The streets get full of people very fast … the shows are near to start.

At every corner, in every street there was some kind of activity, from hand made stuff to some kind of street performer.

At the beginning the feeling to get lost is very strong, you go for this streets full of people and stuff… but the feeling in the air is so lovely.

funny hand-made lamps…

This guy was from japan i think…. faaaaar from home ^^

His marionette was the most scaring i ever seen in my life O_o

More and ore people…

This is the entrance to the head-chief old building… very very nice manteind.

Lovely small houses…

Some hand-made pices were jus amazingly done…

Deep inside the walls you could even find a place where try bowing, the air is quite heavy here but worth the little wait.

People still coming… around 12.00 am

The Lx3 performs so damn well in low light condition… what a grate camera!

And some walls-performers lol ^^

Was an amazing sundays this, lots os people and nice thing…

Well time to go.

Playing with the Lx3

Tonight we recived a nice visit, after dinner one of the neiborhood cat was on our terrace.


His name is Romeo, very indipendent, calm and polite. It’s the first time he cames up to my house… what a lovely surprise ^^. And no better time time to try my new Lumix Lx3 !!


Lol he lost interest on me quite immediatly


Onestly i don’t have a so firm hand and this came little blurry.


And he moved soo much that take crisp photos was almost impossible ^^


But this came out quite well…


more close… this camera is amazing…


Lol he seem quite pissed off by the camera sounds, how  funny.

After a while Romeo went back down the road to his home… hope he will returns soon.

Well bye for now…
