The Beauty of Italian Architecture

1Hunting 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.

  1. 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 !!
