At this Christmas season Bolzano is like a circus.

In the center of Bolzano we see in this holiday season many street performers and beggars who ask for some money.

The biggest advent calendar I've ever seen...

An Advent calendar is a special calendar (in the normal A4 size or slightly larger) with only 24 windows, which is used to count or celebrate the days of Advent in anticipation of Christmas from the 1st to the 24th of December.

The most Advent calendars are made for children and include in each window a little piece of chocolate, cookies or just nice pictures.

This here, located in the center of Bolzano, is "extra large" and displays every day another painting, until december 24th, when all windows will be opened.

November 30, 2011, all windows are closed...

December 5, 2011, five windows are open...

Numbered windows

This is a detail of... what?

If you do not know or do not want to guess, then wait ... tomorrow you will get the answer.

December 1st mystery revealed...

On December 1st, I published an action photo and many people asked:
What is he doing? Why is he here? What is this?
Spider-Man? A lover? A thief? All Together? A window cleaner?!
What a mystery story it creates! Who? Why? What is he/she doing?

Well... it is... a Doll.

One of more dolls that were placed on the wall of this house, above a sportwear shop, to
capture the attention of passers-by.

Here I have other two shots of this scene.

In any case, the scene could also be real, because we have here many mountains and many excellent climbers.
