More Milanese "Liberty" (Art Nouveau)

Another gorgeous example of Milanese "Liberty" (aka Art Nouveau): a combination of French-influenced flowing vegetal forms and Viennese-influenced geometric forms...More......

This image is yet another grate over the basement areas called "seminterrato" ("semi-buried") because they have only about a yard of the upper ceiling area above ground dedicated to windows for light and air, but, being so accessible, need the safety of grating.

I snapped this photo for your personal non-commercial enjoyment on the 25th of April--Italy's national Liberation Day holiday--at about 3:45 P.M.

If you'd like to use this image for a needlepoint, or cross-stitch, project, go to my blog dedicated to needlepoint, Ars acupicturae stellae - Star's Needlepoint Art:
