la facciata

Today’s Parola del Giorno is the noun la facciata, which means facade (also façade). The facade of a building is an exterior part of the building is typically the front of the building (but not always).

There are many interesting facades in Italian architecture. Below you can see the facade mentioned in today’s example from the Chiesa di Sant’Agnese in Agone in Rome.

See the noun used below:

A Piazza Navona, la facciata della chiesa di Sant’Agnese in Agone, realizzata da Borromini, non “cade” dentro la fontana di Bernini. È solo una leggenda, dato che la fontana di Bernini è stata completata prima della costruzione della facciata.

In the Piazza Navona, the facade of the church of Sant’Agnese in Agone, created by Borromini, is not “falling” inside Bernini’s fountain. It is only a legend since Bernini’s fountain was completed before the construction of the facade.
