Lovell House. Last Summer, at my stay in L.A. I tried to sketch,on site, some of my the houses in that city. This master piece, from Richard Neutra was one of them. #uniball and #pentelbrushpen on the little #moleskine

Last week, testing my new and beautiful #leuchtturm1917, in hard raining conditions. I was drawing the #bigarchitects building at 57th street, under a tree to avoid rain drops. Then, it started raining cats and dogs, that was when I moved under a bigger tree and drew my bicycle, on the foreground.

In Florence, at Via de’ Tornabuoni, in between roberto Cavalli an Bulgari stores, facing Palazzo Strozzi. This palace, located in the heart of Florence, is one of the finest examples of private Renaissance architecture in this city.

According to Palazzo Strozzi Foundation‘s website, it was commissioned by the Florentine merchant Filippo Strozzi and the foundations were laid in 1489 according to a design by Benedetto da Maiano.  A year later the project was given to Simone del Pollaiolo, known as Cronaca, who worked on it until 1504 but the Palazzo was only finally finished in 1538. The Palazzo remained the property of the Strozzi family until 1937, and since 1999 it has been managed City of Florence.
