Well, I told you something very special was going to happen while I was in Livorno this time. And this is it!

I was, almost miraculously, granted access to photograph the Acque della Salute, which I wrote about here. It is the most unique, utterly beautiful thermal bath complex in elaborate Art Nouveau style, now sadly in ruins.

I hope you can see some of what I saw, walking around with very mixed emotions. Outbursts of joy over such beauty and ornamental pleasure – and tears over the seemingly hopeless decay and devastation.

More photos later.
