Doors in Roma – Part 2

Here’s another assortment of original and interesting doors, and door hardware, captured on one of several doorscursions from our recent visit to Rome.

Not much in the way of history or fascinating stories to tell in this post.

Just a lot of lovely doors begging to be photographed.

And an avid door photographer who was happy to oblige 🙂

One thing I did notice in Rome and elsewhere in Italy, was the attention to detail in the hardware and accessories.

Rome reminded me that when done right, doors and the architecture that surrounds them can be more than just functional.

They can be true pieces of art.

And just imagine: I haven’t even started yet with all of the churches we visited 😉

As always, I thank you so much for visiting.

  1. All that silent, historical narrative; did you hears the gasps from the readers? Great collection, Norm! I haven’t made it to Rome except for landing at the airport and then taking a train from there to our destination but I met and befriended a lady from Rome when she did her annual vacation on the Amalfi Coast; someday I’ll have to visit Rome and look her up for a doorscursion.

    This is such a great collection Norm. I do love their attention to the details. I thought that my favorite door was the second one, but the patina green one surrounded by the vines may take the cake this week. 🙂

    Oooh, that dragon knocker. I might go to visit, just so I could use that beauty!

    I also love the door with the vines overhead. The fading paint almost looks as though the colour is dripping from the greenery above. Beautiful!

  4. Norm, are you doing Thursday Doors this week? It’s Thanksgiving in the US, but I know it isn’t elsewhere. Just working on posts and scheduling, so I thought I’d check. Thanks!

    No. 2 was wonderful, definitely tops, cause letter slot but you I bet you suspect my favorite is the patina green with the vines I loved on IG. That could be MY door. Course it needs terracotta pots and a stray cat, but otherwise, it’s perfect for me.

    I have been meaning to ask you, as you’re from Nova Scotia, if you are fascinated with Oak Island and it’s history?

    A wonderful door collection, Norm. The green one with the large, open iron work caught my eye. And then the knockers- wow! That dragon takes the cake.

  14. More incredible doors in Rome, and so much detail. What a lovely way to enter a building or your home. They’ve got it right. My favorite door is the first one taken in shadow.

      Cool! All I can say is, get your wallet out. When we changed our front door this past spring we priced out some fancy-pants accessories, though none as fancy as these, and after seeing the prices we decided against it 🙂

  18. Beautiful doors, but the first design and frame struck me most, as well as the first green door. It would be very interesting to know how and for what reason the original owner choose their door! Rome it is!

      That would be a fascinating thing to know; how people come to their choices for important details like these. Yes Rome, I’d go again in a heartbeat 🙂

        I’m thinking you might have to edit that part of your post from “not much in the way of stories” to “not many *known* stories” 😉
        Excellent doors either way! But we’d expect nothing less from a door master in a door paradise

  23. These doors were built by some seriously skilled craftsmen, and the fascinating hardware is like the cherry on the top of a delicious sundae. 🙂

    I like the double wooden doors with carved square panels and the shell motif over them. So much detail, so pretty.

    Arched wooden doors, Lion’s head knockers and a spray of light – that door is my favorite, Norm but these are all gorgeous. They appear to have served well and still be going strong. The dragon handle is nice, the hand, um, I might have a hard time with that one, but photo-worthy for sure. You must have been in your glory.

    It’s like shooting fish in a barrel. Regardless of where you look, there’s another door worthy of attention.

    Like Manja, I loved the dragon handle and also the arched green doors with all that great ironwork. Bellissimo!!

  32. Oooo, just gorgeous. They do beg, don’t they? 🙂 I’m glad you noticed the attention to details which is the backbone of the nation. Without that a Ferrari would be just a Peugeot, amore likes to tease me. There’s so much beauty here that it’s hard to call favourites, but the dragon and both green ones need to be mentioned. ❤

      Thank you Manja. The other thing I discovered from walking around Rome with a camera, that I’m sure you can relate to, is that I had to double my travel time estimates because I was constantly stopping to take pics 😀

      • Oh yes, it’s best without the fixed travel time. I’ve learned to shoot from the hip so that the company doesn’t not protest, in passing, but the truth is I don’t go out to the city centre on most occasions when I’m in Rome. That’s how it is when you come on a family visit. 🙂
