Moderno contro antico - Modern vs ancient

Sempre in tema di festeggiamenti per i 150 anni dell’unità d’Italia, di fronte alla Galleria Nazionale d’Arte Moderna sono esposte le due locomotive della foto.

Si tratta del prototipo E404.001 per alta velocità, ricolorato per l’occasione come un moderno Frecciarossa (creando quindi un falso storico) e della locomotiva a vapore 640.003 (detta “La Signorina”) ancora perfettamente funzionante dal 1907!

P.S. Vi aspetto ogni lunedì per il Monday Night Shot!
Still on the theme of celebrations for the 150th anniversary of the unification of Italy, in front of the National Gallery of modern art are exhibited two locomotives of the photo.

t is the prototype E 404.001 for high speed, recolored for the occasion as a modern Frecciarossa (thereby creating a false history) and steam locomotive 640.003 (called "La Signoria" "The Miss" in english)  still working perfectly from the 1907!


P.S. See you every monday for the Monday Night Shot!

  1. I think I prefer the old one!

    DID SOMEONE MENTION SCARLET?

    Did someone mention scarlet
    Or was it red I heard?
    Perhaps it was a varlet
    Or a vermilion bird
    That shouted out the color
    That’s dearest to my heart.
    (It makes me feel much duller
    If red is not a part.)
