You Are Invited to the First Lomowalk in Como!



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!
