Piazza Vittorio perspective


From this perspective you will probably realize the reason because Piazza Vittorio Veneto (<-- see this selection of photos) is one of the most wide square of Europe and for sure the widest with porticos (in foreground the dome of the church Gran Madre di Dio, then the bridge Vittorio Emanuele I, then the square and via Po).

Da questa prospettiva si comprende forse la ragione per cui Piazza Vittorio Veneto (<-- cfr. una selezione d'immagini) è una delle più grandi piazze d'Europa e, di certo, la più grande con i portici (in primo piano la cupola della Chiesa Gran Madre di Dio, poi il ponte Vittorio Emanuele I, la piazza e via Po).

You've captured a really interesting light there. Thanks for sharing it.

So, how much larger is Piazza Vittorio Veneto than Piazza del Duomo in Milan?

Great vantage point, by the way.

that's just enormous. Such a grand square. You Italians sure know how to build things...

There are a couple of Italians on Monte Carlo today, Fabrizio, but of more interest to the ladies, I think!

One of the biggest squares in Europe I am informed. Does anyone know any more details?

Fabrizio - ikol22 said...

Yes Chuck it is (you can feel it just watching them).

Mike, Extratorino said it's 360 meters long and 111 meters wide.

Thank you Kris and Abraham of your visit.

Se non sbaglio... con un'opera architettonica degna di nota, la costruzione di piazza Vittorio ha addolcito gli svariati metri di dislivello che ci sono tra l'imbocco di via po al ponte Vittorio Emanuele I.
L'ho sempre trovata una piazza romantica, dalle atmosfere uniche, specie di mattino presto.
