Thanks Christos!

second of three instalments on Grosseto.

There are a number of Mussolini-era buildings in Grosseto:

Post-office:

274.


275.


The provincial government (not Mussolini-era) opposite the post-office:

276.


School:

277.


I'm not sure what this is:

278.


Land-reclemation office:

279.


Grosseto still has a complete ring of ramparts surrounding the old part of the city, as is the case in many Italian towns.

280.


281.


282.


Grosseto had a bad name for drugs and crime in the '80's/'90's, and some traces of this period can still be seen (or could be seen in 2008) on the path that leads around the city on top of the ramparts:

283.


284.


285.


286.

Nonetheless, the ramparts gives quite nice views in to the old-city:

287.


288.


289.


290.


291.


292.


293.


And to the other side:

The Consorzio Agrario again:

294.


295.


Some more appartment buildings:

296.


297.


Back yards directly behind the ramparts:

298.


Gate into the old city, which will be the theme of the next post:

299.
