Castle Design: Castle of Racconigi
The Castle of Racconigi is located in Italy. The castle supposedly dates back to around the year 1000. The castle's architecture pays reference to many different architectural styles. (ABOVE) I love the contrast of red stone and white marble. The front facade has a very commanding presence. (BELOW 1) An aerial view of the castle located in Racconigi. As you can see, the back of the castle has many gardens and trees. The castle is the focal point of the city. (BELOW 2) The rear of the castle is far less embellished. Gone is the contrasting white marble, found only on the front facade. (BELOW 3) A close up of the center dome. The pagoda style roof, adds a very unique architectural detail. I find the dome to be rather modern, however, the four columns give it that neoclassical look. What do you think of the castle?
