Palazzo San Sebastiano

Palazzo San Sebastiano, Livorno
The “Palazzo San Sebastiano” (Saint Sebastian building) was built in the late twenties of the last century, along with two other buildings, for the “Istituto Nazionale Immobiliare”.

The namesake Saint appears in a relief on a corner of the building, with above a curious obelisk of sorts.

I love the arches and the lion's heads. I so enjoyed seeing lions everywhere when I visited Italy.

I'm fond of arches so I like the architecture of the first floor but the windows on the top too floors seem to plain.
