Biella :: Portici, Cortili e Balconi

Biella is a city in the foothills of the Italian Alps. It has various quarters each on its own plateau, each from a different period of time, and each with its own architectural character, developed in different times and on different plateaus. At first, we notice the differences among the quarters, but then we begin to see that they all have the same architectural elements: arcades and balconies to shelter us from the weather, porticos to welcome us into arcaded courtyards, and a regular pattern of residential windows on upper floors. Interpreted differently in each quarter, these elements accompany us along our walk, like a group of eccentric old friends guiding us as we explore the city.
