A colourful mural. . .seems a bit unexpected on this classic facade.

@Kate: Tiled panels are quite common in Art Nouveau buildings.

I love the color and all of the details of the architecture.

The window frames look like art nouveau also. But the building itself looks much more classical. Interesting mix.

A sweet little thing. Almost looks like a toy. Buon anno, Massimo.
