My dream house (sigh)

Palazzo Bolchini by P.G. Magistretti, 1927-30, Piazza Meda. My dream house. The "condo" with the (entire half of the floor) terrace on your upper left. The one soaking up the happy sun. Sigh...More...

I snapped this picture on the 17th of April 2009, at 5:30 P.M., before the years long renovation (recently completed) of the piazza, in order to install a much disputed underground parking lot, which destroyed ancient house foundations. Oh Milan, my Milan, so dead set on being modern that you constantly destroy your past.

Thankfully, the piazza is almost as before, including the sculpture by Pomodoro (see my, and the exit and entrance for the parking are surprisingly (and thankfully) non-invasive.
