Carlo Scarpa's BPV Building


I often see groups of university students gathered in front of this facade, with their professor pointing out details, or photographers lingering near and studying angles.
This is part the BPV building (Banca Popolare Verona, one of the leading italian bank groups) an outstanding work of Carlo Scarpa's.
Scarpa was one of the finest italian architects of '900 and Verona treasures another one of
his famous works, the Museo di Castelvecchio.

I'm learning a few things here, name of a famous architect, and the style he created. Lovely.

Looks really interesting. Are those circular openings or windows? The man and the shadows at the bottom are nicely shot!

L'hai resa più imponenente di quello che è sembra un edificio enorme....a me èsempre piaciuta quell'opera di Scarpa, anche se alcuni veronesi la criticano!

Mi sembra molto particolare, non so se lo sia davvero o e' l'angolatura della foto che la renda tale! Comunque interessante.
Ciao Cristy
