Forbidden pleasures. - Piaceri proibiti.


A beautiful company of friends, anything to drink and to eat to the coolness of the evening... to whom would not like to possess a "loggia" as this! Probably a small part of that is alone that did here the cardinal Altemps. This in fact it was his building.
Una bella compagnia di amici, qualche cosa da bere e da mangiare al fresco della sera... a chi non piacerebbe possedere una "loggia" come questa! Probabilmente è solo un piccola parte di quello che qui fece il cardinale Altemps. Questo infatti era il suo palazzo.

@Lori: I show only the things that I love of Rome... , but surely it deserves to be known.

Non conosco il cardinale Altemps mais j'aurais bien voulu être invitée pour visiter ce splendide palais et goûter aux mets et aux boissons qu'il a du servir à ses invités. C'était il y a très longtemps, n'est-ce pas?

@hpy: Le Cardinal Marco Altemps en 1568 utilise le bâtiment pour ses collections magnifiques de livres et sculptures anciennes. Ce grand intellectuel devint cardinal à contrecoeur( ses inclinaisons fortes en autre sens sont montrées par le fait qu'il avait un fils, Robert. A ce temps dans les familles de l'aristocratie européenne, l'aîné héritait le château de famille, le second fils devenait militaire et le troisième sacer(!)

C'était ainsi en France aussi, et sans remonter aussi loin
Mon grand'père qui était dans les plus jeunes de sa famille, a du se faire militaire de carrière et comme il l'était lors de la première guerre mondiale... Il a été gazé, enterré vivant et est mort dix ans après lafin dela guerre

Ce palais parle d'une époque de privilèges. Ce devait être fort agréable pour les privilégiés (mais est ce si différent de nos jours ?)

nazzareno ha detto...

Non. Les privilèges sont amblés seulement.

Intern ha detto...

These are amazing pictures. Very detailed architectural shots.

"Are you mad about what has been happening inside Iran these days? Well then take a deep breath... blow it all into a Green Balloon... and wait until Friday afternoon to send it up to the sky, wherever you are on this planet. Millions of Iranians inside Iran are planning to paint the sky green on Friday exactly at 1pm Tehran time. The non-violent green movement is being cracked down on the ground, so lets take it to the sky."
