Strewth! It could use a few trees, Chad...I mean, what's a dog to do!
gutteridge: Lamp posts Ray, that’s what they normally do when there are no trees.
Hmm - well that is curious
gutteridge: Classical architecture is a winner for ambitious nations.
the architecture is fine, Chad, but i miss trees here.
gutteridge: You and Ray on the same page Ayush.
This is when I want to say "More German you cannot get" as far as the architecture goes, Chad.
gutteridge: The architecture of Florence during the reannaisance was a return to the ideals of the classical style as in Greece and Rome. The style is famous for the heavily rusticated ground floor, which implies power and strength. This was also necessary in the days when business was carried on on the ground floor and was protected with metal bars at windows. Living accommodation was upstairs and often there was a lodgia on the top where the family could stroll to catch the evening air in safety. Florence was a dangerous place in the 16th century.

An elegant looking, classicistic 'Straße - in the background the 'Feldherrnhalle' (Die Feldherrnhalle wurde 1841 bis 1844 durch Friedrich von Gärtner im Auftrag König Ludwigs I. nach dem Vorbild der Loggia dei Lanzi in Florenz erbaut).
gutteridge: Very elegant Philine. I wrote a piece about the origins of the Florentine style in my reply to Ginnie.

It is lovely to see that they can cope without yellow lines everywhere nor having the pavements covered in chewing gum and litter. Are these government bolding?
gutteridge: I don’t know what these buildings are used for but I agree with your comment.

I am always surprised by the scale of the streets. Just look, for instance, at the width of the pavement - you could land a Heinkel 111 on it
gutteridge: Ha ha that is very good Tiff. Big architecture puts the people in their place eh.
Alan makes a good point. Here there would be bollards, signs, yellow lines littering the place
gutteridge: I agree whole heartedly Bill.
Alan makes a good point. Here there would be bollards, signs, yellow lines littering the place
gutteridge: That is worth saying again Bill.
They are certainly fine looking buildings Chad.
gutteridge: It was a joy to be in this Street Brian.

I see also the Theatinerkirche.

Also looks a trifle Moscovian!
gutteridge: Oh really, I have not the knowledge to comment Tom, but I know you have.
