Very Persian looking... Masonic checkerboard?

Sergiba's avatar

It is the entrance portal of a church and was built in the twelfth century, Freemasonry was born in London in 1700, no it is not a Masonic checkerboard

:) yea, this is so great ... I love this perspective :nod:

Thanks! I would have liked to mount a wide angle lens to better take the houses on the left but I would have pulled in the cars and motorcycles parked really flush with the frame :happybounce:

:D this was definitely a perfect decision

Siesta time?

So much history built there...and built well. Best masons in the world are the Italians :highfive:

Sergiba's avatar

Yes also, two in the afternoon ...

In reality they all stopped on the opposite side because a wedding was in progress and they stopped to wait for the couple to leave the church ...

Centuries of history in that church, but among the Italians the best masons are the people of Bergamo (they jokingly make fun of us for this) :highfive: remake

Trippy4U's avatar

Yeah I never thought of it that way but yes there even has to be the best of the best :highfive:

If you want to build a perfectly straight wall, call a Bergamo bricklayer :D
