Italy north to south, looking for a color palette

I have been nearly lived on a train during the last two years, going back and forth between Bologna and Rome. These two cities are pretty different one from the other, but some neighborhoods have things in commons, especially those built during the middle ages. When I first moved to Rome, I found myself looking for those alike neighbourhoods, searching for a particular mood. I still do that sometimes, and everytime I roam around looking for warm colors and bricks' walls, I know I am actually looking for a piece of my hometown.

These photos are from both cities and are a perfect example of how I unconsciously follow a color palette. Or maybe not so unconscously.

All photos are taken with a "vintage" iPhone 4 and edited with Snapseed and VSCOcam. For more of my photos, find me on Instagram.
