A stunning piece of classic architecture and I love those old shutters.

So beautiful - grand but simple and elegant! A very lovely facade for the day.

Randy said...

Beautiful and so classical.

Hilda said...

Very handsome and intriguing details. Can't help but wonder who the man and woman are supposed to be.

Dina said...

I like to imagine VP stepping out on that balcony and with an encompassing wave of the arm exhorting "I proclaim City Daily Photo Theme Day. Bloggers of the world, unite!"

Superb!

VP said...

Hilda - The two busts represent Summer and Autumn.

VP said...

Dina - Any guy speaking from a balcony tend to remind us of Mussolini, the wave of the hand is slightly popish and the last part of my supposed proclamation is a bit too Marxist... May I simply tweet the Theme Day from my couch?

Gorgeous façade!

The sun's high up already, the wooden shutters have been closed, to keep the day's heat out.

This gorgeous façade appears as if in a dream. The details are stunning and the subtle color contrasts look like a work of Italian art.
