decorating construction…

Is it better to decorate construction of construct decoration???(extra points for getting the reference) In Genoa, they sure like to decorate construction, venturi would have approved. Here are some of the thousands of trompe l’oeil and frou frou adornments of the buildings round these parts…

the vertical centre line of windows on the right even contain variations on the way the shutters are open, sometimes it does look almost like the real thing

This one is crazy, the road is so narrow you can’t really see the ornate decoration, it can only really be enjoyed by the neighbours directly in front…

my favourite…weird and wonderful, a whole building in genoa in wedding cake colours with relief sculptures of what can only be described as mutant caryatids…
