Gli Azzurri (Venezia 310)

You wouldn’t think it from their performance in the 2014 World Cup, but Italy are one of the worlds most successful football teams.  They have won the tournament four times (hang your heads England) and been runners up a further twice.

I couldn’t help but think of the blues when I spotted this detail on the facade of San Moise (yes, the church with the strange camels).  It seems that the love of the beautiful game has a long history here.

(Yes, I know it’s a globe really!)
