Palazzo Gopcevich

Palazzo Gopcevich, situated in Via Rossini 4, was commissioned by Spiridione Gopcevich in 1850, to the design of architect Giovanni Berlam, and subsequently purchased by the Municipality of Trieste and converted into a museum venue. It is certainly one of the most beautiful and famous buildings in the city.

It is really beautiful, and very well kept. I like the touch of the azure (turquoise?)curtains against the pink geometry. Great shot!
