Luci d'Artista 2009


Galleria Subalpina (not Gallery in English but "arcade") is a wonderful example of Art Nouveau (Liberty). With Luci d'Artista Marco Gastini "painted" its roof in blue... and red. Ah someone defines Galleria Subalpina a post-Liberty building but I'm afraid he's in wrong. Lyberty style started around 1890 until around 1915 and Galleria Subalpina was built in 1874, so... --- Happy weekend !!!!

Galleria Subalpina magnifico esempio di stile Liberty (Art Nouveau). Con Luci d'Artista Marco Gastini ha "dipinto" il tetto in blu... e rosso. Ah qualcuno la definisce una costruzione post-Liberty ma temo sia in errore dal momento che lo Stile Liberty lo si può datare tra il 1890 sino alla Prima Guerra Mondiale: 1915 - 1918 mentre la Galleria Subalpina venne costruita nel 1874, dunque.. --- Buon Fine settimana !!!!

Very unusual and makes for great photographs. But it's temporary, right?

Fabrizio, that is a wonderful ceiling! Is it electrified? So much nicer than plain old paint ...
