Terme del Corallo

Architectural model by Franco Gizdulich, Terme del Corallo, Livorno
Being quite tired to show you old black and white postcards or the sad reality of today's ruins, I am going to show you the “Terme del Corallo” as they really were.

Franco Gizdulich, a Florence-based architect specialized in architectural models, kindly allowed me to use these images of his model of the “Terme del Corallo”.

The original model was made for Livorno's water utility and it is probably still at its headquarters.

These are wonderful, VP!!! They remind me of models I saw and photographed outside of Amsterdam in April. Architectural models are fascinating. They resemble the real world, but they are so simple and clean and antiseptic.
