Hello forum!

Before my trip in Asia I still got something really interesting to share!

All the photos are from Piazza Statuto in Turin, and the fountain are called fountains of Frejus, was designed to commemorate the inauguration of the homonymous tunnel in 1879.

This for sure is an amazing site.
Someone said is the entrance to hell.

Since Roman times it is evident that this part of Turin were indeed crucified the convicts and buried the dead in a necropolis.
If this is not enough, in 1865, the square was also the site of the guillotine.

This place is mentioned by many esoteric as the black heart of the city, the winged Genius above the pyramid actually could be Lucifer.

Interesting monument. It sounds like the area is full of history. I like the detail in the last picture, with the slime running down the arm. It fits in with the expression on the figure's face.

Thanks for the comments mates!

My idea was to have a cloudy heavy sky but nearly impossible the contrast of the lights was enormous probably a nice blue sky could be better.

Will see probably I will do another set with a perfect blue sky.
