A close-up on the façade of the Accademia di Belle Arti di Brera.
The Accademia di Belle Arti di Brera ("academy of fine arts of Brera"), also known as the Accademia di Brera or Brera Academy, is a state-run tertiary public academy of fine arts in Milan, Italy.
The Academy was founded in 1776 by Maria Theresa of Austria with the objective to teach and research within the creative arts and cultural historical disciplines.
Under the current Italian regulations, the Brera Academy issues academic diplomas of first level (equivalent to degree) and academic diplomas of second level (equivalent to master's degree). In 2005 the teaching of the academy has been classified by UNESCO as "A5". It is also regarded as one of the world’s leading academic institutions.
The Academy has about 3,800 students, including about 1,000 foreign students, mostly postgraduates. It actively exchanges students and teachers with other European countries through the ERASMUS programme, and since 2006, with countries outside EU such as Japan, China, Hong Kong, Mexico, Taiwan and Australia.
The building in which it is housed, the Palazzo Brera, largely dates from the first part of the 19th century.

This is a nice controlled shot with the two flags in the foreground. Not to mention the architecture.
The framing is excellent.

a perfect crop with so much wonderful detail to take in and admire here. Love the little splash of colour that makes the image all the more endearing and effective.

You have followed yesterday's lead, giving us close-up, intimate details, rather than the whole building. I think it works very well. We can appreciate the amazing architectural features and the ornate decoration.
The two flags are a great addition, adding colour and a central focus to your fine symmetrical composition.
Have a great day,

Your camera was perfectly aligned to capture this symmetry. The details of the architecture are an attractive feature as are the colours of the two flags.

absolutely superb composition with the old architecture. The two flags in the foreground are the cherries in the cake. Fantastic framing with so many charming details depicted with excellent sharpness.
Thanks for sharing this beautiful picture.
Have a great day.

La symétrie joue un rôle important dans la composition. Les fenêtres du haut ont le même format et celles du bas sont bien alignées. La prise de vue permet de voir les détails et les couleurs de la façade. La lumière a un bel effet sur les couleurs de l'image. Bonne soirée.
