Discorsi (Italian: talks, 16th century literary genre) from Latin discursus "running to and from" denotes written and spoken communications.

About Discorsi

What started as a website during the restoration project of my Triumph Lenham Spitfire, has finally outgrown its shoes. CarPassionAndMore was my faithful companion through my first years of classic car experience, seen by over 20.000 eyes so far.

Over time "AndMore" became bigger and more dominant with House and Garden, Photography, Arts and Antiques, History and Chemistry during a time where the name "CarPassion" was restrictive towards potential visitors. Therefor DISCORSI.at will be the umbrella under which they will all be found from now on.

Bohemian Uranium

My interest in old glass, especially early and mid 19th century Bohemian glass told on another blog entry already, as well as the challenge of making a good photo, I want to add a new aspect. I have confessed, that the joy of looking for and collecting is difficult to describe. Objects, great or small, rare or ordinary, you will always find something. I'm looking on different flea markets for various historical things of interest, some of those on my list are bohemian glasses and while Czech collectors are offering good money, in rural Austria or small towns you can still find something. Over time I managed to concentrate scattered objects to a small collection.
