EUROPE

The majesty of time.

In a period of great change such as this, attention has gradually shifted to everything that seems new, modern, cutting-edge to us. It is the time of the triumph of futuristic cities like Dubai, of modern art, of architecture with sharp and enigmatic shapes. It is the era of minimalism, quirky designs and neutral colors.

Walking through the halls of Parliament, I really realized how much history has passed through the European continent. Cities such as Budapest, Prague or Wien are the perfect exemplification of why Europe has been nicknamed the "Old Continent": from the unmistakable architectural style to the organization of boulevards and streets, via the stores, historic cafes and the ever-present presence of a river to bathe them, these capitals are a treasure chest of what's left of the centuries that have just passed. 

Unlike other metropolises, European cities pay more attention to traditions and their past, perhaps sacrificing a more innovative and cosmopolitan aspect. This is something I have noticed a lot in European countries: culture is very deeply rooted and jealously guarded, even at the cost of seeming out of time.

Europeans show visitors all the treasures of their cities with pride and pride; they know the history of their rulers and their reign to perfection, and they want to present it as best they can to those who know little or nothing about it.

Europe makes anyone who visits realize how important it is for a nation to have a past, a tradition, a culture.

Culture that is then infused in art and architecture, to arouse in the foreigner that feeling of grandeur and majesty that only time can give.
