Palazzo Georgiadis

After a lengthy period of restoration, here you can finally see the impressive Teodoro Georgiadis palazzo, photographed from the Scala dei Giganti. Built in 1918, this Austro-Hungarian building overlooks piazza Carlo Goldoni and has been enhanced by this new nighttime illumination... I thought cities were supposed to be trying to save energy...!

Bellissima sensazione di silenzio. Stupenda!

Si, ma senza illuminazione perderebbero la propria bellezza quando fa sera. Una foto davvero molto bella.

A magnificent building

Aesthetic qualities and energy saving seldom go hand in hand.
Great pics on your blog!

Ach, did you really have to spoil this gorgeous photo with that last line? Sigh. But you're right of course. And so's Fredrik.

Still, it's absolutely wonderful!

It would be hard to conserve when it's this beautiful all lit up. The 2 lights in the center look like the building's eyes :)

Beautiful Picture. Altough I walked by it many times, I never noticed the beauty of the palace.
Great angle for the picture, as usual. Ciao !

Indeed, they should. But certainly this is a very good lights work!
