The buildings of the Portofino Harbor are taking shape. In the photo above I am working on the San Martino Church, which was built in the 12th century. One of the biggest surprises to Jack and I about Portofino was the rooftops. We expected them to be made of the rust and sienna terra-cotta tiles we had seen throughout Tuscany. However they were lighter colored, most likely made of slate. Occasionally there would be a terra-cotta tile roof but it was the exception rather than the rule.
The buildings are completely blocked in. Now I’m ready to start with the details of awnings, verandas, windows and doors.
