Isola Bella, Lake Maggiore: a baroque fantasy

isola_Bella_lago_Maggiore_1

Some people have more money  than they know what to do with, or more fantasy in their cervello than the ordinary man, so they create a baroque fantasy on an island in the middle of the lake and stuff it with albino peacocks.

I’ve give you Isola Bella.

And baby albino peacocks.

One thought on “Isola Bella, Lake Maggiore: a baroque fantasy

  1. I don’t have any excess money, but dreams are cheap. My fantasy would not necessarily involve baroque architecture and baroque sculpture, but it certainly would involve living on an island in the middle of the lake. Imagine waking up each morning, totally surrounded by Italianate gardens and endless water… how sublime.
