Entrance


Yes this is the main entrance of an old building in Corso Francia in Torino. It seems architecturally heavy and "baroquish" = over elaborate. HoveverI sure you all it's fine and tomorrow I will post a daily photo of it and the house too.

Sì questa è la porta di ingresso di un vecchio palazzo in Corso Francia a Torino. Sembra architettonicamente baroccheggiante o quanto meno pesante mente invece posso assicurare essere molto bello. Domani inserirò una foto presa di giorno che comprenda anche la casa.

True, there is a little Gaudi element to it - but I love it!

Splendido l'accostamento liberty-fantasy!!!! Non mi era mai capitato di vedere un'entrata così...dopo questo antipasto aspetto il resto.

When I look at this kind of architecture, I always am thinking, that they are like splendid art pieces
made with a great ability and using plenty of time to create it. Admirable in many ways.
What kind modern buildings Torino have, are they decorated still with some modern way. We have In Finland so simply way to build. Turku, which is our oldest town, has some beautiful old houses and there is also an real old cathedral from 12th century.

Most stupid thing was to start to build houses with flat roofs , here in snowy Finland, they have been catastrophic starting to spill and after that to mold (mildew ? ). And
boxes are never beautiful :)

Thank you for your visit and writing. Living a real life is most important, blogging comes after that!

Great shot with great lighting - it looks almost like a stage facade.

It's a while since I commented, but I've been looking. In Italy the whole landscape is a showpiece of style! Greetings, to you Fabrizio. Thanks for dropping in.

Gosh, that is certainly ornate. And I agree a bit Gaudi-esque. Lookign forward to seeing its context tomorrow!

That doorway is wonderful. The details are great.

Dsole said...

mmm... maybe a little bit over elaborate, but isn't it gorgeous? i think so!

I see dragons, also a security camera in the high left. A well guarded entrance. Great details.

Fabrizio, this is an excellent photograph. I like the style as it was the thing to do, obviously. To me the style is kind of like the old saying, "If you got it flaunt it." If you put gold leaf on the colonnades it would pass as a palace. I like your picture of it.

I hope you get to see the Rose-Breasted Grosbeak that came to Brookville, Ohio yesterday. It is the first one I have seen since we moved here 44 years ago.

The Salems said...

Il nome dell'edificio è "Palazzo della Vittoria", costruito nel 1925 dal Carrera.
