Miramare Station

This quaint little station was built in 19th century to serve Miramare Castle (residence of Archduke Maximilian von Habsburg and his wife Charlotte) and the surrounding park. Some decades ago it was badly damaged by vandals, but it has recently restored to serve the nearby International School of Advanced Studies. Unfortunately restoring works destroyed che huge and ancient wisteria that used to adorn the porch. Oil pastels on paper. 30*40 cm. About 2 hours plein air... the tick that bit me is not shown If you are interested: this is a photo of the station on wikipedia: http://it.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Miramare-stazione.jpg
