O.M.G – What IS This Place?

Filed in Zodiac Fashion

Have been in a Virgo Moon frenzy trying to figure out the location of this fashion shoot. The magazine online has NO info – anyone know?

Okay, yes, yes male model & check out the very now Slytherin sock monitor sort of a look BUT note the astrological frieze up there. Dude is standing beneath Scorpio, obviously and next is Saggo.  And the map?  Is this my castle from a past life?

Virgo librarians, scholarly peeps, well-travelled Saggos, general know-it-alls – thoughts?

The fabuloso photographer Giovanni Squattri just msgd me on FB and said it is a private home in Milano!
If you want to know which one, you’ll have to hire me ;P

Awesome! The Temple of Astrology! Does that make it a bona fide religion?

That reminds me of this zodiac clock . . . did I see this here on this blog originally? It’s in Prague.

It’s beautiful up close and personal too. Prague is such a magical city.

Could be 15th century or earlier, and not necessarily Italy.

Rib vault (the ceiling) is supposed to be Gothic architecture (circa 12th c.) but Gothic tympanums (the semi-circular panel on which Scorpio and Saggi are depicted) are supposed to be more vertical, as compared to Romanesque (circa 6th to 10th c.) which are more semi-circular (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tympanum_(architecture))

“Ancestors of the Gothic rib vault in the Romanesque vaults can be found at Caen and Durham, both sites of early Gothic constructions, and elsewhere.” http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rib_vault

So could be France or England too?

I’m going to take a stab in the dark and guess that it’s a Freemason lodge somewhere. Some grand Masonic hall. Very Essential Homme.

Good call! Yes, it kind of reminds me of what I imagine the interior of the infamous San Francisco Bohemian Club to look like.

Italy @ 15th century building – Latin experts where are you? Can only read sea (Mare) and virtue or greatest virtue (bottom right). Too tired to google it. Gorgeous model….

Agree – somewhere in Italy, but that doesn’t help the exact location!

I agree, Italy. Maybe a palazzo? That’s a fancy name for a big house many of which are now museums and art galleries.

Looks like a church, in Sweden there are a few churches with astrological artwork and themes. But I could be wrong.
