This photo fits into yesterday's just to the right of the imploded building. It clearly shows the curved nature of the old town's side streets.
If you enlarge the photo and look down Via Amente to the point where the two sides of the street seem to merge, you can see a building that looks as if it's all wrapped up in plastic...it is covered from top to bottom by the scaffolding that is used in renovation projects. That is then covered by a net-like material that serves to hold in all the debris that inevitably falls down during the work. It holds in big chunks of stone and wood, but I can assure you that it does nothing to contain the vast quantities of dust that are kicked up during these projects. I know, because during the 11 years I lived in Molfetta Vecchia there was never a time when someone wasn't restoring a building nearby.
Pointless to point out the green shutters...I'll just note that the home in the center of the photo has natural wood shutters which some people have preferred when renovating.
p.s. Best wishes to everyone! Today is All Saints' Day...so it's everyone's feast day!
