SEA SHORE 1 - URBAN AREA IN AN ITALIAN COASTAL LOCATION
SEA SHORE #1
This photo is part of the Sea Shore Project.
Decades of overbuilding have produced extensive and heterogeneous urban areas facing some of the most beautiful Italian beaches.
Even in the event of abuse, the repeated amnesties have regularized the buildings for passing on to future generations.
The buildings, different for structure, materials and colors, have gradually accumulated alongside each other in unlikely and fascinating aggregates, constituting a self-contained universe with strong aesthetic and poetic overtones enhanced by the coastal location.
