genoa…

escape after 2 and a half weeks with no break…

random things from a walk around Genoa…
cutting big chunks out of old buildings to make way for a fly-over right through the centre of old city and port…that’s ’70’s town planning for you…they are still fighting over whether to pull it down or not…

coloured shadows…

garibaldi…he gets to wear his red coat again in celebration of 150 years since the unification of italy…

wedding italian style…on their way to the awaiting iconic italian car, the cinquecento. Its very trendy for the bride to arrive and leave in this tiny wee car, i have seen some huge meringues of dresses squished into its modest interior…

Liguria uses a lot of monochromatic stripes in architectural decoration…the duomo:

arnolfini marga…in a chi chi designer store housed within a historic palazzo in genoa
