Per avere tutti questi anni direi proprio che si conserva bene questa Porta Palatina con le due torri.

Un abbraccio Pietro e buon weekend!

This is really imposing red-brick gate with two towers on either side. It is a precious monument that resists the time. This photo is beautifully framed with the tree lines on the left and red-brick poles on the right. Great photo!

I just saw in your last post that the Alps are snow covered! I do love the view from "the other of the mountain chain"! Unfortunately in Vienna it's still too warm,we had just 3 single snow flake today!
Have a goodweek in Turin, Pietro! Best regards, Maria.

Ciao Pietro,
This..
This is really fantastic! Magnifique shot, and fabulous start for my Monday. Probably the best preserved example of a Roman city gate must be this, right?
It's color is my most liking. I can't believe you live in another portal of culture, history and art.

Happy Monday & Warm greetings from East Rome in Istanbul:)

A very fine perspective of a great building. Romand knew not only about architecture but also of engineering!

Ciao Pietro, questa foto (bella!) evoca ricordi del mercato vicino e dei barucci dove si mangia kebab..io sono curiosa, devo sempre assaggiare tutto:-) L'impressione che mi dà sempre è quella di "annusare" la storia..
Buona giornata ed un caro saluto.

ciao Pietro, il freddo si fa sentire.
