PT x Other Countries RR - Group 7

I love to get cards from Italy, that's why i joined the group 7 - Portugal x Italy - on this RR. I've received 3 great cards.

Matteo "angelus86" sent be this great card from Genova with the Rolli Palaces at the Garibaldi Street. This street, in the old city, was inscribed on the World Heritage List in 2006. This district was designed in the mid-16th century to accommodate Mannerist palaces of the city's most eminent families, including Palazzo Rosso (now a museum), Palazzo Bianco, Palazzo Grimaldi and Palazzo Reale. Palazzo Bianco and Palazzo Rosso are also known as Musei di Strada Nuova. The famous art college is also located on this street. - in: wikipedia

Lambert "micio" also sent be a Unesco card. It shows the Piazza della Cisterna in San Gimignano.
The Piazza della Cisterna is the most beautiful and famous piazza in all of San Gimignano. It is enclosed by a wall of nobility houses and medieval towers. It marks the junction between the two most important roads: the Francigena and the road leading from Pisa to Siena. It was the heart of San Gimignano, forming, along with the Piazza Duomo, the cornerstone of the medieval city. While Piazza Duomo was the religious and political centre, the Piazza della Cisterna was the place dedicated to popular culture, with a marketplace and a site for holding public performances, festivals, and tournaments. - in: http://www.italyguides.it/us/italy/tuscany/san-gimignano/piazza-della-cisterna/fountain-of-cisterna.htm
