When you said that Italian villages seem monochrome, I must to disagree with you, again. Ligurian Riviera is a perfect example of explosion of colors and Italy is by far one of the most diverse European countries when the discussion is kinds of architecture. We can see villages and towns with German, French, Spanish, Portughese, Greek, Turkish and Swiss look from the North to the South, believe me.

Sorry, but I think your comparasion wasn't good. However, as I said, I respect it!
I did not mean any disrespect. And the fact is that Italy is unique in the world. No other country comes close to having so many different architectural styles invented, and then developed in the kind of abundance that you find in Italy. So Italians have absolutely nothing to defend. You guys have too much as it is, but I will stick to my opinion on some of these villages. Yes, the Brazilian favelas look worse, but I also would not want to live in some of those Italian villages either. Compared to the rest of Italy's architecture and heritage, these villages are overshadowed into near non existence, and in side by side comparisons French, or German villages are visually more pleasing and more inviting. As I said this is just my Opinion. Different flavors for different tastes.

in my opinion you can not compare a perched village in south europe to brasilian favelas .
the traditional architecture to poverty
