Duomo di Torino by night

I showed the Cathedral of Torino last time in August (---> HERE) and I would like to let you see how it looks like by night. Built the first time at beginning of 600 a.c. it was rebuilt between 1491-1498. Actually it hosts the "Holy Shroud" that will be exhibited in 2010.

Ho mostrato il Duomo di Torino lo scorso Agosto (---> QUI) e mi piace, ora, mostrarlo come appare di notte. Costruito agli inizi dell'anno 600 d.c. venne ricostruito tra il 1491 e il 1498. Attualmente ospita la "Sacra Sindone" che verrà ostensa nel 2010.

What a grand thing it is all dressed up for the evening.

Thanks for the link to the daytime shot, which is also quite stunning. The sky was beautiful, but the night shot is equally attractive. Such antiquity impressed me!

Dreamy, ehetereal image. Night photography really challenges the the eyes to take in all in.

Sigh. It's even more beautiful at night! Although I suspect a lot of it has to do with your wonderful photography!

l'atmosfera del Duomo e totalmente differente nel notte e nel giorno, e interessante a vedere le due fotos insieme. Un duomo belissimo, naturalmente...
