Belle image urbaine Paolo,mais la question est la propreté et surement la sécurité des gens,voir les touristes un sérieux problème en devenir :(

like cher Paolo :)

... c'est probablement ça la raison, Guy, pour laquelle ces élégantes toilettes ont été fermées dépuis quelques temps !

What a pity that it is in that state. Don´t you think it could be recovered. Did you think of sending this photo to the newspapers? Good luck!!!!

Certainly a remarkable image, and a regrettable condition for those for whom the facilities were intended. O tempora, O mores!

Una bella curiosità il link che ci fornisci Paolo. Da non crederci, a vedere il giaciglio di un senzatetto tra foglie secche e sporcizia, che dietro a questa porta si trova un ambiente cosi bello ed accogliente. Mi sembra di aver capito dall'articolo tradotto che sia comunque accessibile con una guida. E' così?

Thanks Dom, Eva, Doug, Greta. I have never entered into these wonderful public toilets, but I am convinced that only the exterior has deteriorated, becoming a haven for homeless.

I am also certain that it is a temporary closure and, once reopened, you will be able to visit them also without guide.

Paolo, queste sono per donne! ;)

pivapao on January 27, 2013

Si, Greta, ma simmetricamente, a pochi metri, c'è anche l'ingresso per gli uomini !

grecik on January 27, 2013

Ne ero certa! Del resto, l'uguaglianza su questi piani è più che sensata :)

fermées??? - elles peuvent faire ça debout sur l'esplanade, comme beaucoup de congénères dans le monde.....

.... évidemment, Damir, quand tu n'es pas avec moi, tu fréquentes un monde particulier qui m'est étranger... 8-)
