Scusa che scrivo in inglese, il mio italiano non è così buono ;)

There is also a copy in The Netherlands:


source: wikimedia commons

Oudenbosch Basilica (Basiliek van de H.H. Agatha en Barbara) in Oudenbosch (pop. 12.500), The Netherlands.
Built between 1867 and 1880, it's a smaller version of St. Peter in Rome, with a facade that is a copy of St. John Lateran, also in Rome.

It is located here (Google maps), and the good thing is: you can Streetview all around it!

An interior shot, complete with "Bernini" baldacchino: (more can be found via wikimedia commons)

^^ Indeed. If an architect doesn't like the St. Pietro facade, why not put a St. John facade against it, right? :D

Oh, and if you like the outcome, why don't you build a second St. Pietro/St. Giovanni replica the same little town, right?

St. Louis Chapel (Kapel St. Louis van de Broeders van de Heilige Aloysius) in Oudenbosch (pop. 12.500), The Netherlands.
Built in 1865, it has a facade which is inspired by St. John Lateran, and a dome which is inspired by St. Peters,
also in Rome.

It's located here (Google maps), about 200 meters from the other St. Peters-inspired building, the before mentioned Oudenbosch Basilica.

These two St. Pietro/St. Giovanni copies result in an interesting skyline for a town with just 12.600 inhabitants:

La basilica di Oudenbosch è veramente impressionante, un copia-incolla ridotto di S.Pietro con l'aggiunta della facciata di San Giovanni Laterano.
Complimenti per l'originalità...

Un complimento per l'architettura olandese da un italiano! E anche un disegno rubato ...
Spremere il mio braccio! :D

Anzi, è piuttosto sottotono cupole in Oudenbosch, in contrasto con gli edifici postmoderni di cattivo gusto come quella cosa a Yamoussoukro.

Complimenti ritorno per la fornitura di ispirazione.
