El Petirrojo, El Paisaje y el Sol

_DSC1112

Es extraño que se acerque tanto a mi, estoy en el pico de una montaña, intentando en un día gris, con poco sol, retratar el alma de unos cráteres volcánicos que antaño eran monstruos de fuego, representación del dios Agni en todo su esplendor. Hace frio, aunque es Junio, estoy apoyado en una losa de piedra, solo, y el petirrojo viene, se queda, me mira, y mira hacia donde yo lo hago, el paisaje.

Bienvenida Primavera!

La primavera besaba
suavemente la arboleda,
y el verde nuevo brotaba
como una verde humareda.
Las nubes iban pasando
sobre el campo juvenil…
Yo vi en las hojas temblando
las frescas lluvias de abril.
Bajo ese almendro florido,
todo cargado de flor
—recordé—, yo he maldecido
mi juventud sin amor.
Hoy, en mitad de la vida,
me he parado a meditar…
¡Juventud nunca vivida,
quién te volviera a soñar!

Antonio Machado

Before talk about the watch, it is necessary to understand the circumstances under which this watch was conceived and its significance to Panerai’s history.

In 1935, it had become painfully obvious to Italian authorities that the Italian Navy maintained a weak position in the Mediterranean Sea. The Italian Navy stationed at Taranto was surrounded by the British fleet at Malta, off the coast of Sicily, at Gibraltar by Spain and at Alexandria near the Suez cannel. Additionally, the French Navy maintained a capable fleet at Toulon. Italy was, by default, the third naval power in Mediterranean waters and outnumbered in terms of battleships and did not field any of the all-important aircraft carriers that would prove so critical to the Allied war effort in World War 2. In 1940, British Royal Navy aircraft from its carrier fleet attacked the Italian fleet at Taranto, sinking one battleship and damaging at least two others.
