Gasometro

The former gas holder, a classic example of nineteenth century industrial architecture, which has long since been disembowelled of its enormous cistern, has been standing unused for many years now. One day maybe, it'll be turned into a planetarium, a congress centre, or a museum. We'll just have to wait and see.

Stunning photo! Light and colours are awesome!
The building really deserves some dynamic intervention, it's great.

What a view. That is a beautiful building. Amazing to think it's standing there empty. Such a nice shot.

I love the quotes about photography, Rob.

We have an old gas depot here that was converted in a theatre, so who knows. Lovely picture too, nice green and blue.

Buon fine anno anche a te, Rob. E tantissimi auguri per il 2009!

Nice colors, and nice and simple composition. I´d like a planetarium :)

It has nice architecture. I wonder if there are structural difficulties in making a conversion.

The whole neighborhood seems to be addressing it, as if it is at the center of their attention. It really deserves to be put to another purpose. Beautiful photograph.
