Made me think of the joy and sound inside, with a large family, children running from one to the next floor, parents shouting, grandmother cooking ...

Please have a good Wednesday.

Love the balconies.

This is unusual, VP. I wonder why the architect uses blocks in some places and not in others.

A wonderful building, made up (like a puzzle) of different styles; the stones, so characteristic for the Italian buildings in Northern Italy, add to the impression.

I like the design of the balconies, I wonder why it looks so abandoned?

It's elegant enough as we may see Juliet on the balcony!

Just imagining if Juliet had done her "Oh Romeo Romeo" bit on the top balcony...not sure Romeo would have made it up there! ;D
