The Italianate Architecture Thread

(First I must Say that this is probably my favorite Architectural style)

Italianate Architecture was first built in England in the early 1800s, and was popularized a little while later here in the US. The Style originally was a take off on the Italian Renaissance Many of the trim and designed were mass produced and fashioned out of cast Iron. The buildings were covered on ornament, but unlike classicism, there weren't too many design rules, restrictions, etc.. The Style is found in Many places such as SoHo, Brooklyn, and just about every Main Street in Existence. The stye continued to be popular until the 1880s, but there are plenty of examples built up to 1900.

Please post any good photos you have of examples.

Great thread. I read Cincinnati has the largest collection of Italiantes structures in the country. I go there for mass (Marienkirche in OTR) and I'd believe it!

the examples from wikipedia look more coherent with the idea of an italian inspiration, this one resemble the liberty style town villas:

Yes, the first one is more of an Italian renaissance revival (which is pretty much what Italianate is), but I have to disagree on the second one, and say that I don't see any dutch traces, but It looks more like a blend of Victorian, and Italianate.
Also, It does seem like in the 1840s-50s the style was rather strict, and specifically based off of villas, but in the 1860s-70s, it seems much less so (and also a blend with Victorian).

Italianate was very popular during the Victorian era in the US and is often considered a Victorian style here.

So, what really classifies as italianate architecture in the US? As another poster said the examples on wikipedia seem more coherrent with eachother than the ones in this thread, although I find the examples posted here more in line with what is generally described as 'italianate'. There seems to be some overlap with rundbogenstil?

Would a building like the one below be classified as italianate if it had been in the US?

Probably, although I know those windows look very northern European. To me, it seems like a blend of Italianate and Romanesque, the kind of stuff I love
