Nervi never shied away from his love for the gothic.  And I’ve just been editing a bit about the “eyebrows” in the Palazetto while gawking at St. Denis and Chartres.  And–maybe it’s just me?–there seems to be a wonderful parallel between these eyebrow windows and the way the classic fan vaults fold the cathedral roofs out of the way to let light in.IMG_8117IMG_0653
