Wiki Loves Monuments 2021
Search, shoot, upload, win... and give value to beauty!
In September appointment with Wiki Loves Monuments to immortalize in memorable shots the monuments of Lucca.
The city walls, Piazza Anfiteatro, Torre Guinigi and Torre delle Ore, the Botanical Garden, the Nottolini aqueduct... these are the pearls of the city most photographed by #locals & #tourists.
