|About Italianate Architecture
Italianate architecture was inspired by the rural villas in the Italian countryside. It typically will include low pitched gable roofs, with overhanging eaves supported on scroll-cut brackets, arched windows and doors, and tower forms.
Italianate Style Mouldings
Italianate style mouldings are typically elaborate combinations of shapes and profiles, frequently involving standardized profiles, fretwork and turnings made by machines.
