Galleria Alberto Sordi

Day 28.

Today we ventured to the Galleria Alberto Sordi for our sketching class. It is on Via Del Corso which is a really popular and big shopping street that goes from near the Spanish Steps all the way to Piazza Venezia. The Galleria is very interesting because it is modeled after the one in Milan, and is meant not to be a shopping mall, but an interior walking space with shopping included. The details that they added to make it feel more like an interior space include streetlights and adding "apartment" spaces above the stores, just how they would be like outside. It is nice to draw and sketch something a little different, and I am enjoying taking visual not on not only the architecture, but the design of the space and what works in an interior place. This is a picture of the center of the Galleria, with the glass translucent ceiling, something you do not often see in Rome.
