Inside the Galleria Umberto I, a 19th-century shopping gallery in the centre of Naples, Italy.

"It is located directly across from the San Carlo opera house. It was built between 1887–1891, and was the cornerstone in the decades-long rebuilding of Naples — called the risanamento (lit. "making healthy again") — that lasted until World War I. It was designed by Emanuele Rocco, who employed modern architectural elements reminiscent of the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II in Milan. The Galleria was named for Umberto I, King of Italy at the time of construction. It was meant to combine businesses, shops, cafes and social life — public space — with private space in the apartments on the third floor.
The Galleria is a high and spacious cross-shaped affair surmounted by a glass dome braced by 16 metal ribs. Of the four glass-vaulted wings, one fronts on via Toledo (via Roma), still the main downtown thoroughfare, and another opens onto the San Carlo Theater. It has returned to being an active center of Neapolitan civic life after years of decay." (Text from Wikipedia).

On the stairs leading to the church of San Francesco d'Assisi all'Immacolata in the Baroque town of Noto, Sicily.

"Built between 1704 and 1745 on the initiative of the upper Philip P. Tortora and designed by architects Vincenzo Sinatra and Rosario Gagliardi, the church of St. Francis with the adjoining convent of the Friars Minor Conventual (mostly university) is one of the most impressive religious buildings of Noto. Harmonious facade, projecting on a grand staircase with three flights there is a beautiful doorway flanked by artistic baroque columns and three niches, two of which are to sides and a smaller one above the portal."
