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



About Discorsi

My website started during the restoration project of my Triumph Lenham Spitfire, now it 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.
