Theme Day: Heights

Acrobatic System at work, piazza Matteotti high-rise, Livorno

High rise piazza Matteotti, Livorno
With its 26 floors and 91 meters it is more a high-rise, but it is still the tallest structure in town.

Brave souls.

An excellent illustration of the "heights" theme, VP. And, it is still one more job that I really would not want!

Dina said...

That's an interesting building but not one I'd like to be suspended from.
I hope the workers get to see and enjoy this photo of themselves.

Oh gosh! I don't have a serious problem with heights, but that job wouldn't be for me anyway!
God bless you!
