Piazza Carlo Felice


This is one side of Piazza Carlo Felice. It's a wide beautiful square in front of the main railways station of Torino called Porta Nuova = another Art Nouveau excellent piece (more to come about it).

Questo è un lato di Piazza Carlo Felice. E' una vasta e bella piazza di fronte alla stazione ferroviaria principale di Torino: Porta Nuova = un altro eccellente pezzo costruito in stile Liberty (pubblichero altre fotografie della stazione)

Thanks Fabrizio, for the award, but nore for all your visits, comments and compliments - and especially for your beautiful views of Torino. I would give you one back, but I think your trophy cabinet will collapse!

Per scattare questa foto ti sei fermato all'altezza del Jolly Hotel Liguere. Quanti ricordi...miei, ma anche di altri torinesi. Sai che Buscaglione ha suonato anche lì?
Dalla parte opposta invece, proprio sull'angolo una volta c'erano dei tizi che giocavano (ed invitavano a giocare, soprattutto!) alle tre carte. Pensa te... non so se ci sono ancora.
Ha del fascino questa piazza... a me piaceva svoltare in piazza Lagrange, dove davanti al grande magazzino tecnologico (Marvin) c'è un caffè che sembra una bomboniera. Se ti capita facci un salto e dedicami un buon cappuccino torinese ;-)

This is a breath taking pic of the Piazza. You have caught the light just right and the reflection off the surface of the road is fantastic. Thanks for the links to the great blogs. These all deserve the award.

Congratulations Fabrizio on your receiving the award, and many thanks for awarding it to me. I feel honored, that it is from you, whose photography is always impressive and inspiring!! Very beautiful piazza with what looks to be another elegant arcade walkway and architectural surround.

Love the wet cobblestones - is it raining in Torino?

Thanks for the award, Fabrizio! You are very likeable, too ;-)

Beautiful light & the composition is just right! I love the archways in your city.

Ming the Merciless said...

Thank you very much for the nice award!! I love your photos too.

Any time I have a chance to sit down and look at everyone's photos, I find yours to be one of the most impressive.

Aww, that is so sweet. Grazzie mille!!! :)
I agree with Ming. And that's not because he's from New York!

Jilly said...

Thanks so much Fabrizio - really so happy to be included in your choices. You'll see I've added your name to both blogs. Ciao!
