Chiesa di Santa Rita da Cascia


This is one on several churches in Torino. It's quite popular and in May (22nd) they sell red roses because "the rose" is Saint Rita flower. I personally don't like this church because of so big bell tower and the church seems to be built around.

Questa è una delle molte chiese in Torino. E' piuttosto conosciuta e nel mese di maggio (il 22) viene venduta una rosa rossa perché "la rosa" è il fiore di Santa Rita. A me peronalmente non piace molto questa chiesa per via del suo immenso campanile attorno al quale sembra che la chiesa sia stata costruita.

Fabrizio, Interesting that you shot this church because last night I an mi esposo went to a neighboring college campus to take photos of a lighted church on the grounds, which are quite beautiful. My photo is not as nice as yours, but I will post it in a few days. Happy sunday to you!

Fabrizio - I see your point. If you squint, this could look like a military aircraft on the tarmac at night, seen from above.

Wouldn't it be nice if photographers could waive their lenses and get rid of unwanted street lights and electric wires?

I see what you mean - the tower overpowers the rest of the church. Still, it is a very impressive sight...

Yes, Fabrizio, it is still a great night shot :)

Condivido le tue considerazioni sulla chiesa, ma forse proprio la caratteristica del grande campanile
la rende unica, o forse è la suggestione della tua bella foto che mi fa vedere le cose in questo modo.

Wonderful night shot!

I like the silvery look about it. Mostly nightshots are golden.

This is another great night shot Fabrizio - somehow or other I think the lights at the right make it better

Poly said...

Yes, it is "diferente". But the photo is nice.

Very nice photo. I love the environment because the lighted building is so much clearer.

Susan said...

The buildings in this and the previous post are so well lit, they make wonderful subjects of night photography.

Ooh, stunning night shot. So crisp and clear.

Very nice photo though I see what you mean about the church which is badly proportioned. Still I think it probably looks better at night.

Looking at your photo makes me want to return and live in Europe. I lived in Paris for 6 years, traveled throughout Europe and now miss Europe in a big way. Especially here in Miami. Did you see a picture of one church in Miami in one of my blog on daily photo? Pathetic! And they all pretty much look the same. Sigh! Only consolation is the eternal blue sky.
