#273 I miss Aprile

Aprile dolce dormire…

‘Sweet sleeping on April’

Spring comes, the sun shines, the air is warm, Nature wake up after winter sleep… what’s better than a nap in the Spring sun?

(Bomarzo, il Giardino dei mostri)

April, the month of Venus, goddess of beauty and love

Francesco del Cossa, Allegoria di Aprile, the Triumph of Venus is at the center of the scene. The goddess is on a boat drawn by swans, the god Mars is chained, imprisoned by Love, on the shore little white rabbits symbolizes fertility, and Love is clearly in the air.
