I saw a beautiful street, the Via Aurelia, and now I am in a beautiful town, a really beautiful town, Genoa.  I walk on marble, everything is made of marble: stairs, balconies, palaces.
Gustave Flaubert, 1845, extract from a letter to a friend.

I could spend an entire day here in Via XX Settembre, in Genova, just photographing the light as it changes under this beautiful covered sidewalk.
