Palazzo Modigliani

The name of this building in “Piazza Attias” is “Palazzo Modigliani”.Unfortunately this building hasn't anything artistic, in fact it is the home of the “ugly corner”. The Coin department store has already threatened to move if something doesn't change.I am not sure our Amedeo Modigliani would have appreciated this kind of art on his namesake building, but who knows?

A disgrace. A universal disgrace, in fact. Same story here, of course. But somehow it's worse in a country like yours, so rich in art and history.

I really rather like the building, but migod don't these bastards have something better to do than destroy private and public property. This is not a victim-less crime. Perhaps the authorities in all countries need to crack down and make the penalties for this kind of activity very severe!

What a shame to let such a beautiful building fall into such bad shape. Don't your city authority have any pride?

Ugly Corner is right! What a shame VP.

It is a very interesting looking building and why isn't something done. Vandels are just awful. Cowards. MB

Interesting building, but it is the 'ugly corner' indeed!I'm sure Modigliani wouldn't have appreciated it at all!

It's a pity indeed, the building has a modern architecture , I like the first shot, that facade and it's so sad to see it in this way.
Have a nice weekend dear friend,

This looks so familiar! The building is really cool but I'm glad Modigliani can't see what they are doing to it...

It's a shame that people cannot resist doing this sort of thing!

It's colorful, but I never like the feeling of vandalism behind it. Even our train cars are almost always covered with it.

Modigliani did have some modern stuff! But I'm not sure this would appeal to even him.

It is sad..... !!!:-(

That is one funky building! Sad about the graffiti though.

Steffe said...

It's a fantastic building. Too bad about the graffiti.

At least they're defacing the new building, not the old ones - mind you, it's a pretty building.
