Camii in turco significa Moschea.
Dopo la gloriosa conquista ottomana di Costantinopoli avvenuta nel 1453, molte chiese sono state convertite a Moschee, con uno specifico decreto di Ataturk.
Più di 2900 quelle oggi attive ad Istanbul, in cui ti imbatti inaspettatamente, in un variegato tessuto urbano. Alternate a grattacieli, alberghi di design, boutique hotel e avveniristiche costruzioni, spuntano ovunque, e la metropoli accoglie architetture diverse e stili urbani stratificati in una piacevole quanto composita fusione di epoche. Perchè le tradizioni e le nuove tendenze, qui vivono in perfetta armonia.
Oggi, mi sono soffermata all'ombra di un parco. Ve ne sono tantissimi in città, spazi verdi, oasi di pace ampie e curatissime, ricche di decori floreali, che ovviamente ospitano storici luoghi di culto. Adoro questa città che richiama fedeli in preghiera in ogni angolo e che riempe la vista di soffici cupole e slanciati minareti, ornati da finestrelle e balconi di pizzo.
Indosso un top "off the shoulder" e un paio di shorts, per combattere il caldo afoso, senza rinunciare allo stile.
(Clicca qui e qui per vedere due miei diversi outfits dove indosso un top con scollo "Bardot").
(Clicca qui, qui e qui per saperne di più sul trend).

Camii is the turkish for Mosque.  
After the glorious Ottoman conquest of Constantinople in 1453, many churches were converted to Mosques, with a specific decree of Ataturk. 
More than 2900 are active today in Istanbul, where you come unexpectedly, in a diverse urban fabric.
Alternating with skyscrapers, design hotels, boutique hotels and futuristic buildings, Mosques popping up everywhere, and the metropolis welcomes different architecture and urban styles stratified in a composite and a pleasant fusion of eras. Here, the traditions and new trends live in perfect harmony. 
Today, I stopped in the shade of a park. There are a lot in the city, green spaces, large and manicured oasis of peace, rich of floral decorations, which, of course, are home to historical places of prayer. I love this city that attracts worshipers in every corner and that fills the view of soft domes and slender minarets, adorned with windows and scalloped balconies.   
I wear an "off the shoulder" top and a pair of shorts, to fight the sweltering heat, without sacrificing the style.
(Click here and here to see my two different outfits where wearing a neck top "Bardot").

Location Sultanahmet park Istanbul
I was wearing:
Alysi off the shoulder top
Annie P. shorts
Chanel sunglasses
Hermès "Collier de chien" bracelet
Prada Tote bag
Adidas "Stan Smith" sneakers

    mi sto chiedendo se i problemi politici ed economici traspaiano in qualche modo. Grazie :)

    1. Ciao Elena, in città si respira un’aria di tranquillità dappertutto.. oltre alla zona centrale e turistica, di Sultanameth o Galata, nella quale è forse più scontato aspettarsi una situazione di controllo (c'è polizia ovunque), abbiamo tranquillamente girato anche nei quartieri meno centrali e sono veramente rimasta positivamente colpita dalla serenità che si respira ovunque, non abbiamo percepito nessun problema…l’Isis purtroppo può colpire qualsiasi luogo.
      Tra l'altro uno studio conferma che Istanbul ha il tasso di aggressioni più basso in assoluto fra tutte le capitali europee.
      L’unico serio pericolo che si corre qui è quello di innamorarsi della città, si decisamente la metropoli più cosmopolita e europea del Paese!

  86. Ciao Paola, leggevo con attenzione il tuo post ed è bellissimo scoprire dettagli così interessanti di una città magica come Istambul. Mi piace tanto come racconti e come spieghi ogni luogo che ci fai vedere con una tale precisione (che credimi... si capisce che sei una donna preparata e amante della conoscenza). In te vedo sempre il mix della donna perfetta: bellissima, intelligente e umile. Qualità che ammiro e che apprezzo tanto.
    Ahh dimenticavo adoro questo top abbinato a tanti dettagli bianchi, sei stupenda.
    Un bacione
    ps: credimi che farò l'impossibile per andare a Milano i giorni che sarei presente anche solo per darti un abbraccio.
