More Sardinia for You



This is near the very very old church in the seaside town of Porto Torres. The church is behind me but I liked the old columns with the scooter and the laundry. Why can't we have peeling plaster like they do in Italy, is what I want to know. Why does their plaster peel in exactly the right way? How do they do that? For that matter, how do they make unpainted cinderblock look so interesting?

Claudio Bravo said it's the light. The Mediterranean has a rich deep blue sky. In contrast, as you move farther north, the sky becomes duller and more gray.
I don't know if he was just talking out his ass, because I've never been anywhere close to the Mediterranean, but if you look at paintings from the Netherlands and Italy executed in roughly the same time frame, they seem to support his contention.
