<p>This image captures a picturesque scene of the marina in Lerici, a charming town located on the Italian Riviera in the region of Liguria. The marina is filled with small boats gently bobbing on the calm waters, creating a serene and inviting atmosphere.<br />
<br />
In the background, a hillside is densely packed with colorful buildings, characteristic of Mediterranean architecture. These buildings, painted in vibrant hues of yellow, orange, pink, and red, are tightly clustered together, creating a striking and lively visual effect. The facades are adorned with green shutters and balconies, some of which are draped with ivy or potted plants, adding to the charm and vibrancy of the scene.<br />
<br />
The waterfront area is bustling with activity, with people strolling along the promenade and enjoying the waterfront cafes and restaurants. The mix of natural greenery on the hillside and the vivid colors of the buildings creates a harmonious blend, typical of coastal towns in this region.<br />
<br />
Lerici, part of the &quot;Gulf of Poets,&quot; has a rich history dating back to Roman times. Over the centuries, it has been influenced by various cultures, contributing to its unique architectural style. The colorful buildings are a hallmark of Ligurian architecture, designed to be both functional and visually appealing. The vibrant colors were traditionally used to help fishermen identify their homes from the sea.<br />
<br />
This picturesque setting, with its blend of natural beauty, historical charm, and vibrant architecture, encapsulates the essence of Mediterranean coastal towns, making Lerici a beloved destination for visitors and locals alike.<br />

<p>What a sight… the dome of Florence Cathedral (the cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore), seen from a room in the Uffizi Gallery.<br />
<br />
As a matter of passing interest, the cathedral's octagonal dome, completed in the 1430s, was the most ambitious of its time and still remains the largest brick-built dome in the world (the outside is covered with terracotta tiles). It comprises around 4 million bricks, weighing more than 40,000 tons.</p>
