Yesterday I went to see the house in which Valentin Metzinger lived. It stands on the opposite side of the street where the oldest houses in the city center are (I showed them to you in my previous post). There are his initials above the door and the plate says that he lived here between 1740 and 1756. He died three years later.I walked up the castle hill to see the fresco that he created (actually this is a copy, the original is in a museum). I wonder if the face on the left above is his portrait and if the woman's face is the one of Terezija Robba. The book says that he was a beautiful man. He painted many pictures that can still be seen in the churches around Slovenia. At the end he found his fame, and hopefully peace, too.
So, my walk through Ljubljana yesterday in the afternoon a was a pleasant one but I was really tired when I came back home. There are more photos I want to show you but I will do this in my next posts. Have a good weekend!
