Moulin Rouge

Moulin Rouge around a window, Effetto Venezia, LivornoA “Moulin Rouge” built around a window on the “Scali Rosciano”.Voltaire stage, piazza del Luogo Pio, Effetto Venezia, LivornoProbably the only French flag in the whole “Effetto Venezia” with the colors in the right order.Tricolor tablecloths, Effetto Venezia, LivornoI am not sure if using another country's flag as tablecloth could be considered a homage...

The tablecloth-flag concept is questionable. ;) I think it's a message. Of course, there are other places it could have been used.... :\

It looks as if someone has left a scarlet letter on that shutter in the first image.

The colors are wonderful.

I actually think the red mulino is quite cute, despite the cliché...

@ brattcat - The windmill is a prop for a restaurant, the note in matching color is their menu.

Nice idea for a windmill, menu and all.
But oi veh, national flags as tablecloths?

I really like the idea of the window surrounded by the famous Paris landmark. Interesting series of images VP, captured with your talented eye for revealing the sense of a place. Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

A “Moulin Rouge”is so lovely! I'm not sure about the flag, but it happens pretty often doesn't it? Especially with Union Jack.

The bright red windmill is bold and beautiful. Makes me want to hum a few bars of Come What May :D

I rather use it as a table cloth than wave it.
