Portoni

by Laura A

The smartphone is coming very much in handy for taking spontaneous photos in Torino.  One thing that fascinates me is the variety of big front building doors, or portoni.  Most are late 19th or early 20th C., but they have “Baroque” details.  Torino is newer-looking, and fancier-looking, than a typical Italian town.

Please note the dragons in the sixth photo down.

I confess that it may be that the only reason I posted these today is that I’m going to Rome tomorrow and I’m avoiding the necessary preparation, including gathering information to do my American taxes.  But maybe I’m also ready to start posting some again. I hope so!
