Ischia Porto. Peculiarities of the national architecture

Getting out of the impasse back on Via Gian Battista Vico, I went further, already guided by the map.

Chasing, decorating the door niches, where there are meters of gas and water. It would seem, overkill...but it is beautiful Also nice to see a sign with the house number. The ability of Italians to turn even the most utilitarian thing into an element of decor is simply amazing.

Budget solution for cargo transportation. On such "two-wheeled trucks" the owners of small vegetable gardens transport their products to the market, cafes and restaurants.

The look of this house is enlivened by elements of Art Nouveau style. Although the Windows of this form I later met on the island repeatedly, including in buildings built long before the appearance of this architectural style.
