Monday Mystery Photo – Where in the World Are We?

Each Monday I post a mystery photo, or occasionally a mystery object on my blog.

I encourage you to leave a comment if you think you know where this week’s mystery photo was taken. If you guess correctly, I will credit you the following week and post a link to your site/blog.

Where in the World is the following photo taken? Can you guess?

second batch 442

Last week’s mystery photo seen below, was submitted from Tara at AftertheRain

It was indeed the Neoclassical  “Mole Antoneliana” in Torino Italy as revealed by Domenico at his blog by http://en.gravatar.com/domeniconardozza

Originally intended to become a synagogue, it was commissioned by the Jewish community. However, the unbridled ambition of the architect caused the building costs to more than double, doubtless causing much beating of foreheads and cries of I can afford that, already? The good burghers of Turin stepped in to make it a museum for the Italian ‘Risorgimento’ epoch: the 19th-century movement for Italian unification that culminated in the establishment of the Kingdom of Italy in 1861.

Scandinavian culture, literature and traditions are close to my heart, even though I am Australian. I have Scandinavian, Frisian and Prussian/Silesian ancestry and for that reason, I feel a connection with that part of the world. I am an avid Nordic Crime fiction reader, and enjoy photography, writing and a variety of cooking and crafts, and traditional decorative art forms. Politically aware and egalitarian by nature, I have a strong environmental bent.

  1. I know that view well as I was just in Innsbruck right before heading to Munich for Oktoberfest. My night in Austria was the mid-point of a two week trip and the next day was for doing laundry at a place across the river.
