IFJM 28: Genoa, the Painted City

April 28

W15 4 28 IFJM 004From my journal:  “Genoa, a key city in the novel.  The colors of the city are like Pompei, bright almost garish painted facades.  So many influences . . .  Arab? Roman?  We haven’t had enough time as we near the end, but I was able to find several key places we researched and soak up the visuals on how the city might have been. 

Then there are the Sad Lions.”
