Parma – some Stile Liberty architecture

As regular readers of this blog will know, I’m a huge fan of Stile Liberty (Italian Art Nouveau) architecture and I try to find the local examples everywhere I go. All these buildings can be found on my map marked with a small castle tower. Click on the galleries for the best view.

Villino Bonazzi
Address: 8 Viale Rustici, on the corner with Via Magenta

Palazzo delle Poste

I have no information about this unmarked building on the corner of Strada Cavour and Strada Duomo.

Some more unknowns I spotted along Strada Cavour and near the market square.

Monument to Filippo Corridoni

The allegorical high-reliefs represent Faith, Love, Poverty and Revolutionary flame.

Antica Farmacia San Giovanni

I think I saw this carving along Borgo Giacomo Tommasini.

Next, my favourite pitstops during my walks around the centre…
