Windows onto the World!

Windows are the eyes of a building onto the world…

All along the River Leno in Rovereto there are houses which have been restructured and modernized.  The interesting point of this building are it’s windows, which once were arched, then someone decided that rectangular windows would be more interesting…but then, during a modern refurburshment, it was decided to paint where those curved windows once were…even if off center to the present windows!

I particularly like these windows which we find all over Trentino, this one is in Rovereto near the center of town.Inside of the house, people often have a sort of couch build under the window and you can sit there having the sensation that your leaning over the street, which of course you are.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAI adore the window bridges that one can find all over Italy.  Again this is in Rovereto, not far from the river Leno.  It’s a public building as often is the case nowdays, part of an old aristocratic estate.

There are lot of original shop front windows throughout Italy.  They’ve made an art of show casing their wares…but this is probably my favorite shop windows…it’s a hat shop near the center of Rovereto.  These “driades” were had carved by the Futurist artist Fortunato DePero, they are four statues in total.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAI hope you enjoyed this walk through Rovereto.  Tomorrow, I have some windows that I shot the other afternoon in Riva del Garda but haven’t had time to process them.

    • Ah yes, I love those windows too…you can find them in Trento and a few house in Riva still have them though it’s more rare. I think they’re a left-over of Austrian architecture.
