The Beauty Of Italian Architecture

Discussion in 'General Discussion About Italy' started by ralmom101013, Jan 31, 2015.

  1. Is anyone else fascinated by the architecture of both classic and modern-day Italian houses and buildings? Living in a small town in the states, our buildings and houses are for the most part pretty average. Whenever I look at the architecture of most Italian homes and buildings, they remind me of castles or cathedrals compared to here in the states. I just love looking at pictures of them, and I'd love to visit Italy one day to see a lot of them in person.

    My favorite about them is that so many have villas and the classiest looking medieval steps and entryways. They just seem to be build with such great design, passion, and creativity.
  2. I think Italian architecture is a major part of a visit to Italy. It is art in itself. People go sight seeing just to see the homes on the canals of Venice, the Leaning Tower of Pisa, the Coliseum. These are some major Italian tourist attractions and it is all about architecture. Italian architecture is fascinating and a major part of the Italian culture.
  3. Italian architecture is so gorgeous! Even places that are just residential areas where the people live are so pretty.

  4. The architectural design I like is Verona Arena a Roman Amphitheatre. It is one of the historical place in Italy and where the opera performances given there. I like it because it is one of a kind that preserved ancient structures.
  5. I didn't used to be this amazed by Italian architectural design, because I thought that they were considered normal amongst other world renowned man-made things. But I think this type of discovery could use more stories. I don't know what influences the architectural choices the makers have decided to make when designing the wonderful buildings, and I would like to know what Italians think of their architecture. I often wonder do they realize how wonderful a building they have? Do they think the buildings are pretty? When I look at pictures of amazing Italian architectural works, I often think that I could be looking at an amazing photograph or a newly discovered wonder of the world and I would not have realized it.
  6. It is one of the many things I love about Italy, wonderful architecture in every city. I think to some extent, it is because Italy used to be so many small city states, so every major city is like a capital of its area.
  7. Italian building look amazing and have great architecture. I also like how the contrast is Milan, where the modern building or next to the old buildings. Kind of like Boston. The small Italian villas look great as well and has that old charm to them. Italy still remains true to what it once were, which makes it so popular to visit.

  11. Awesome pictures right here. No question that Italy has a lot of history, and has some of the most beautiful buildings and architecture in the world. The way this conjugates with the new architecture and modern buildings make the country even more special.
