Sweet 200

The rejuvenating cure and aesthetic surgery of the main facade are almost done. The lady looks pretty and her peach skin immaculate. Almost like a 'torta'. Sweet 200 (years)!

And the new iron grids look so sweet with their quirky elaborations matching the grids of the balconies and the one over the main entrance.

... yes, it was our decision.

We thought we need some curlicues to not have the grids look like prison grids.

Before I start again wondering if it was the right decision ... we need to see the whole picture, the entire facade in real, on site.

Pictures sometimes don't show you the way you look at the things in reality.

Take the blue balkonies. First I was not 'amused', then we got more pictures from different angles. Like this one below.
I love the reflections !


  1. Oh wow, that sea. There's nothing like the blue of the Mediterranean. Lucky you to have that view (and the tiles are lovely too.)

  2. It's just breathtaking...I would never leave...

  3. Wow this all looks so amazing and so very Italian. You are doing a great job.
