Artist's Description

Italy? France? Portugal?

No in actual fact this is Wales. The story goes that a guy called Sir Clough Williams-Ellis based Portmerion on the style of an Italian village, taking 50 years to complete. Nowhere though does it record why he decided to built it in Wales and why not save 50 years of his life and just live in Italy?

It’s a bit like if I tried to replicate the Great Pyramid of Giza in my back garden by putting some bricks together and calling it, ‘The not so impressive Cube of Guisborough.’ It doesn’t quite work and it isn’t needed. Just go and see the real thing.
