I don’t know how you can be an architect without going to Italy.
My brand new wife and I went recently and we were absolutely taken by the country. It was by far one of the most beautiful places I have ever been. The art, architecture, people, food and their way of life is beautiful. It has certainly reshaped how I look at architecture and life. One thing in particular I want to share with you are some of the doors I saw. Some were in small villages and others were in larger cities. To me the beauty is equal in all of them. Please feel free to let me know what you think.
