POTD: A Bricked Canvas in Italy

This is Burano, Italy. It is a small village situated on the Venetian Lagoon in northern Italy. Burano is well known for its exceptional, brightly colored houses. The colors of the houses are based on a specific system that has been in place since the village’s founding. If one wishes to paint his home, one must send a request to the government, which responds by making a note of the certain colors permitted for that specific lot of houses.
