A gathering of Ferrari with the background of the Duomo di San Giorgio in Ragusa Ibla (Sicily).
The Duomo is the work of the architect Rosario Gagliardi from Siracusa. He is responsible for many of the masterpieces of Baroque architecture that characterises, not only Ragusa, and in particular Ibla, but also the entire Val di Noto. Work began in 1738 on the site of the Church of San Nicolò or rather on the site where that church had stood prior to 1693. It was completed in 1775. The towering façade is typical of Gagliardi and he used this technique for other projects. It is surely one of the finest examples of Sicilian Baroque architecture. The 43-metre high dome was only finished in 1820 by Carmelo Cultrari. The wrought-iron gates at the bottom of the 54 steps leading to the main doors date from 1880 and were created by Angelo Paradiso.

An interesting contrast in styles - modern cars v old architecture.

You have captured this nicely with a good depth of field.

Ciao Michelangelo,
What an beautiful combination of Ferrarşs and a splendid architectural details. The contrast of the colors is also fantastic.
Complimenti e buonsera,
Zeynep

Me gusta el contraste entre la catedral y los ferraris,
aunque una vista más amplia hubiera mejorado la foto y yo pienso que tiene demasiado brillo,
me gustan los colores, y esos ferraris!!! Buen ojo!

Un saludo,
Elena

Ciao Michelaccio,
ci sono questi eventi a Ragusa e non mi dici nulla?
Davvero bella questa immagine con in primo piano il rosso delle Ferrari per finire con l'ormai superfotografato Duomo di San Giorgio.
Bel contrasto davvero, ottimo POV.
Regards, tfs, Giorgio.

Hi Michelangelo;
The lighting and colors are fine with excellent sharpness and detail.
The composition is very well balanced and the depth is perfect.
Congratulations.
Oguzhan...

ciao Michelangelo,
gia' il titolo preannuncia un'accoppiamento insolito - oddio, per molti forse la Ferrari e' un'opera d' arte al pari del barocco...
e' molto bello il modo in cui il rosso si ripete nella foto: prima le auto, poi i giubbotti dei ferraristi, infine i segnali di divieto... anche lo stile barocco, se vogliamo, si basa sulla ripetizione e il rincorrersi di certi dettagli.
mi vergongo a dire che non sono mai stata in Sicilia - e a vedere queste vostre foto mi piange il cuore a vivere cosi lontano da questi posti unici. spero che prima o poi riesca anche io a scattare un mio "taccuino di viaggio" in sicilia!

This is Italy... churches and Ferraris. Where are de beautiful Italian girls? Just a joke, Italy is so much than this.

In Spain it would be a Houses Promoters builders Protest by the crisis!!!

Best regards.
