One of the best places to get a view of Ponte a Serraglio is from the litte square in front of the Bernabo baths.
Many of my favourite photos have been taken from there. I have been admiring the view for 12 years. In the foreground you can see the top of the acacia trees (the bright green ones) which are now threatening to obscure the view.
This is the view now. The acacias have not been trimmed for a few years and they have become very high.
These are the offending trees.
Right now the view is not too bad because the crop of acacia trees that has sprung up is free of leaves, but soon spring will be here and the view will be completely obstructed.
I have tried asking who owns the land the trees are growing on, but I have had no luck. Does anyone out there know who to approach to have the trees cut?
It would be a real pity if these pesky trees are allowed to keep growing and ruining one of our best views.
