Where in the World (140)
I can’t believe that we have reached 140 Where in the World… posts. That’s closing in on three years worth. I am amazed at the interest it generates and those who follow it regularly will no doubt recognise that some of the names recur many times. Thank you to all who take part whether it is regularly or occasionally.
Last week proved a little challenging. The flag flying on the top of the building would suggest that it was an Italian city. That’s the country identified. Secondly the architecture of the building would suggest a northern rather than southern building. After that it was a case of some research. The most common, but incorrect answer, was Rome. However, the building shown was the Palace of the Dukes of Savoy and is known today as Palazzo Reale di Torino. The city is therefore Turin.
The city was most commonly misidentified as Rome, Milan, Triestes, Madrid or Budapest. Quite a variety of answers. However, congratulations to Tim (@timofnewbury), Atul (@pixodentist) and Wendy (@flavorofitaly) for correctly identifying the city.
This week’s twisted photograph is another building that is representative of, and iconic to, the city to be identified.
