From the photographer: "The paths of the Full Moon and Saturn in the sky of Pisa above Arno River, Tuscany, Italy. This is the farthest and smallest full moon of the year with Saturn shining bright near it. This is the full moon of June (June, 9, 2017), before of the Summer Solstice. It is called the “Full Strawberry Moon” because June was the month of harvesting strawberries and the ripening of berries. Different names of the Full Moon were established by the Indians of America based on the characteristics of each month's Nature. The tribes kept track of the seasons by choosing a different name for each recurring full moon. The most famous denominations are those assigned to the ancient tribe of Algonquin, the population living in the New England area west of Lake Superior, then adopted by European colors. The blue building on the other side of the Arno is Palazzo Blu. Palazzo Blu is a center for temporary exhibitions and cultural activities located in 9 Lungarno Gambacorti, in the heart of the historic center of Pisa, Italy. This museum is managed by the Fondazione Palazzo Blu (a foundation funded by Fondazione Pisa), and is located in the Palazzo Giuli Rosselmini Gualandi (and Palazzo Casarosa), ancient palace restored by the Fondazione Pisa. Its name comes from the blue color uncovered during an architectural recent restoration, and attributable to the taste of Russian owners who acquired the Palazzo in the eighteenth century.
