Ancient to Modern

During my July holiday I had a wonderful opportunity to visit the splendid town of Vicenza in northern Italy whose beauty and elegant charm have left me marvelled.

The first night offered a quieter and less crowded edition of the place as many cafes and restaurants are closed on Mondays. I went for a stroll within the Basilica’s arcades and took a glimpse of modern shops at the piazza looking through one of famous Palladian windows. At the edges of the window you can see some modern installations for sunshades that would be open and ready again for Tuesday crowds.

Ancient to modern… the old world adjusted to our “modern” needs. Is it always a good idea??
