Bookstores Alive and Well in Italy

… and did I mention beautiful?

This is Libreria Rizzoli which is located in the breathtaking Piazza del Duomo in Milan. Though it appears to be just a storefront, it  actually connects to many other fine stores and rests opposite more high-end retail. The magnificent marble constructions extend upward where they blend and form a fantastic arch that covers the pedestrian walkways.

Piazza del Duomo – Libreria Rizzoli is through the arch to the left. Incredible.
