Hunting Lodge (Rotunda), Stupinigi Palace, Piedmont, Italy
David Burdeny captures the stunning architecture of the Italian peninsula. From north to south, Burdeny’s sharp eye takes the viewer into unique spaces, some still private residences, others transformed into museums, others shuttered permanently and falling into decay. His compositional symmetry and attention to light and color betray his background as a practicing architect, as he gives value to the structure as a living, breathing figure. It’s easy to imagine the phantoms of history past floating through the scenery.

Amazing!!! I have family living in Italy from Milan to Florenze to Sicily. I have visited Italy and am always in awe and wonder; how did they do this so many centuries ago. I wonder if the architectures wonder the same thoughts. :o)
hehe yeah i think they wonder to!
Probably more. :o)

Beautiful, breathtaking architecture…phenomenal!
Great style photography that really sets off the elegance of these palazzi. We’re very familiar with Caserta, and are planning a trip to Turin both of which don’t get the tourist attention they deserve. Glad to see you included superb Villa Farnese in Caprarola, which is a mere 60 km from Rome and where I’ve never seen any tourists !!

Ahhh, the fascination of rich, ornate architecture and decor, the flamboyance of the wealthy. Elegance can be extreme: pleasant to look at but the cost of upkeep? Desirability is in the eye of the checkbook holder. Re-blogged from https://alk3r.wordpress.com
