CDP September Theme Curiosities

For the September theme, I prepared two photos....

Every time I passed by this place, out of curiosity I always wanted to know what is going on in there. it has been closed up for years and doesn't seem to have any work done yet. So here I am, peeping through the gap to take a look inside.

This 'mysterious man' was seen standing on the balcony of an apartment in piazza Vittorio, surely he attracts many curious eyes from the street below.
