Foro Italico is a huge expanse of green space on the seafront in the Kalsa District of the city. The seafront was commissioned by the Viceroy Marco Antonio Colonna in 1582 and was enlarged in 1734. The whole area was destroyed in World War II and it was not until the late 1990’s that a redevelopment plan was created for the waterfront area.

This is a wide grassed area between the seawall and Foro Italico Umberto 1 with a variety of trees, assorted statues and seating, and a cycle path near the sea. It is irrigated but maybe the water had been turned off during the winter and early spring as the grass looked distressed in many areas. In early May, like other city parks and gardens, it seemed to be awakening from hibernation. It dates to 1582 when Viceroy Marcantonio II Colonna authorised the creation a walking path along the coast. I bet the area was maintained to a higher standard for the aristocrats of the city.…
