Squaring the Circle – The Monumental City
Aerial view of La Monumental embedded inside Barcelona’s Eixample district. La Monumental is Barcelona’s noucentista-style bullfighting ring in Barcelona. Built in 1914 and closed in 2011 when bullfighting was banned in Catalunya. Since then it hosts sporting, musical and circus events.
Galleria Sciarra, Rome, Italy
This hidden Art Nouveau courtyard is an opulent feast for the eyes. The opulent courtyard was built in the late 19th century for the wealthy, influential Sciarra family. It was meant to be a shopping mall, which, had the mall come to fruition, would perhaps be one of the most beautiful shopping centers in Rome.
