Palazzo Carpano

This is one of my most loved court in Torino. It's about about Palazzo Asinari di San Marzano actually Palazzo Carpano. What it's remarkable is that you can see a court (floodlit), a small arch, the second tiny court and into the second small arch in the background (closed at floor with two stairs): the entrance door. A wonderful perspective. I'm very very sorry about the poor quality of the photo but it was taken by night at free hand with my compact camera. I really hope to be able to show it as it deserves in future.

Questo è uno dei miei cortili preferiti in Torino. Concerne Palazzo Asinari di San Marzano attualmente Palazzo Carpano. Ciò che è straordinario è osservare il cortile illuminato a giorno, il piccolo arco, il secondo piccolo cortile e nel secondo minuscolo arco in fondo (chiuso ai piedi con due scalini): la porta di ingresso. Una stupenda prospettiva. Mi spiace molto circa la bassa qualità della foto ma è stata fatta di notte a mano libera con una compatta. Spero davvero di poterlo mostrare come merita in futuro.

The pillars are beautiful. They look like wood.

But-but-but Fabrizio, it is pretty awesome that way! I am all for low-key equipment! Loved how you guided our eye in your description.

Great "layered" photo. The small camera did a good job :-)

The perspective through the multiple areas is nice--spaces through spaces. And especially how you see in the photograph's center , the floodlit court, with its detail.

Palazzo Carpano è molto bello, ma tu sei riuscito a passare il burbero portiere fumatore di sigaro?

Just catching up with your great photos, Fabrizio. This is such a beautiful courtyard - not surprised it's the most loved.
