A favourite corner

This is one of my favourite corners in Livorno. It’s where the Fosso Reale (the old moat) turns just southeast of Piazza della Repubblica.

I have yet to climb down these stairs and walk the quay. Maybe next time.

The whole of Piazza della Repubblica is a huge vault, Il Voltone, over the canal.

Doors like this fascinate me. Where does it lead? What does it look like inside?

But now to the corner itself. I really like the curve.

And the colourful buildings!

Beautiful details.

Notice how the yellow building stretches out and follows the curve.

A pretty view of the corner with Ponte San Benedetto. And now we’ve almost reached the Mercato Centrale.
