Wonderful Color Photos of Italy in 1969

Italy is considered the birthplace of Western civilization and a cultural superpower. Italy has been the starting point of phenomena of international impact such as the Magna Graecia, the Roman Empire, the Roman Catholic Church, the Renaissance, the Risorgimento and the European integration. During its history, the nation gave birth to an enormous number of notable people.
Italy has a very broad and diverse architectural style, which cannot be simply classified by period or region, due to Italy’s division into several city-states until 1861. However, this has created a highly diverse and eclectic range in architectural designs. Italy is known for its considerable architectural achievements, such as the construction of arches, domes and similar structure during ancient Rome. Check out these wonderful photographs of Italy taken by Bruce Thomas in 1969.
