Via della Torre

Viale Italia, via Pacinotti, Ardenza, Livorno
On the corner of Viale Italia and Via Pacinotti we can see an old gazebo inside the garden of a villa. The place faces the Rotonda of Ardenza, a round grove of pine trees by the sea.

A similar view, from the first years of the last century.

The same place in 1933: Via della Torre (Tower Street) was the old name of Via Pacinotti.

The "new" trees and hedges add a lot.

Apparently not much has changed, except the palm tree is grown. Nice comparison with the old photos !
