There’s no Colosseum in St.Petersburg, so we draw it :). This spot is the finest example of public street art. The traditional St.Petersburg yard is decorated as a small piece of Italy.
Here you can find the Colosseum as you see it in my photo, a channel that without any doubt came from Venice and also some anonymous, but beautiful windows. Maybe our Italian guests could identify the origin of the image. When it comes to the tree, I feel it’s somehow associated with beautiful Sicilia and her orange and lemon trees.
The work is still in progress, so maybe new artifacts will appear soon. At least, I hope. I was very disappointed to hear that local officials, for some unclear reason, decided last autumn that this painting was violating regulation concerning historical buildings. But then locals and urban activists protested and it seems that this nice Italian patio is saved.
Lifehack: now it’s easy to enter the patio, because of a tiny cozy cafe opened here recently. Just push the Check Point button on the intercom and you can come in.
