Almost Finished

New building, Scoglio della Regina, Livorno
The new building and the rest of the complex at the “Scoglio della Regina” (Queen's Rock) are almost finished: the piazza has already a few benches, but the mysterious statue is still completely wrapped.

The pattern of the paving is eye-catching and almost hypnotic. On a side there is also a small jetty.

Sadly, the nearby Big Blue Shed is getting bluer and more conspicuous by the day...

I can hear bicyclists warning each other now not to look down. :-)

I like the pattern on the flooring/walkway.

The building and the paving are quite dramatic and they fit together nicely. I am still holding off forming an opinion about the blue structure.

I like that pattern too.

I love your perspective in the first shot. And that sky - so blue!!! It will be interesting to see what lies under the wraps.

Il cielo azzurro! :-)

Great piazza. The building reminds me of Rome's EUR.

Interesting wavy paving - it seems so appropriate beside the ocean. ;)

Wow, that top photo is very impressive. All that space, the pattern in the plaza and the stark look of the building and then that wrapped statue. It all makes a stunning photo.

That pattern is beautiful though dizzying.
