Italy has amazing architecture from the 15th century, italy is home to the renaissance, gorgeous roman ruins that take your breat away, great landscapes but I think Italy is kinda falling behind the world, when it comes to modern architecture........ what do you think?


TORINO


MILANO


ROME


NAPOLI


FIRENZE - FLORENCE


PALERMO

I PERSONALY THINK ITALY IS GORGEOUS, BUT I THINK ITALY COULD USE SOME GREAT MODERN AREAS IN ITS MAIN CITIES WITH MODERN SKYSCRAPPERS.

The way I see it, the situation is close with France.
Italy has great cities, and IMO they should be preserved. What they need is modern architecture and skyscrapers outside the city center as in Naples. And I think Torino is building some pretty modern stuff for the Olympics, isn't it?
