Art Nouveau style building

This 19th-century building (originally intended for public use) was embellished by a decorative layout with cement bas-reliefs representing scenes of country life, set into the twin pilasters and small balcony over the entrance.


Via Fogliani

The “lively naïf bustle of cherubs, garlands, twining vines, sparkling festoons and plates with images of country life reaches its climax in the singular feature of the young caryatids dressed in the fashion of the time.”
