Public Housing

These buildings are "case popolari," or low-cost public housing. They are very bare bones architecturally, both inside and out, and looking a little worse for wear. What you can't see in this picture, however, is that they are located on the seafront. On the other side of the building they have a beautiful view of the sea!

As someone once said, "You can't have everything." Is the view of the sea worth living in a building that is inside and out "a little worse for wear"?

I dunno. Interesting conundrum, though.

Great photo, Saretta...you've captured well the "worse for wear" and I love the antennas jabbing into those beautiful clouds!

If you got to be poor, then,you should have the best of views.

That view of the sea would be worth a lot!
