Portals

In quite a lot of constructions, in the Gasperinese territory, the entry is equipped by a portal made of local granite stone, inclusive of  archway, and sometimes side volutes.
The language of the various portals is different. In the most ancient blocks of stone there are floreal engraved motives, modelled vaults, fillets, shapes of rose, while the archways are modanate and combining; others are characterized by patterns in relief with shapes of double points of diamond; in others, simple and double flat shapes are rhythmically placed; the less ancient portals are more austere.

“The portal was the characteristic representative element on the architectural plan of the social status of the owner…”
