I am old-fashioned cow, I love the architecture of 18-19 centuries, so warm.

irina :D lots of mixed reactions from the visitors of the villa ! what is it ..why is it in that room ? ..i would have liked to been able to enter the room itself ...i'm sorry we were only allowed to view it from the doorway ... how it was inspired and generated i find fascinating .. i love the proportion harmony and beauty of Palladian villas..the interior is interesting as only the "blueprint" of the original frescos remain... hope to see some of those C18th C19th building in Russia one day
