Via Pietro Colletta

What used to be somebody's farmhouse out in the countryside is now an anachronism located in the middle of modern apartment buildings, city streets and traffic at the dead end of Via Pietro Colletta.

The two photos below show what's left of the stables.

Urban sprawl reaches Molfetta! Those green shutters really add new depth to the meaning of ubiquitous.

Jerome in Hanoi posted something similar a couple of months back, and so did Sally in Sydney. And Tokyo has lots of old, traditional houses right smack in the middle of their towering modern skyscrapers. They look kind of funny in the middle of a city, but I'm also kind of glad that they're preserved. Reminders of a life that was slower and more genteel.
