Description Portofino is a famous little town at the Italian West Coast - South of Genoa. Originally it was inhabited by fishermen. Today it is a fashionable town. Too fashionable in my taste. Tourists, Gucci stores, billion class yachts, fancy restaurants.As I looked closer at the old colorful houses I was terror-stricken. All the architectural details around windows etc. was not real - they were PAINTED.But now I have taught myself to look at the houses as a piece of scenery - just a flat.And it is a beautiful piece of scenery - a beautiful flat.I look forward to work with more genuine towns in Cinque Terre like Monterosso al Mare, Vernazza, Corniglia, Manarola, and RioMaggiore.I was there and a friend of mine has immortalized the magnificent scenery - I'll do an art work on each of these towns - concluding my series of old fishermen towns and their fantastic architecture.
