You asked, I deliver: the Neoclassicism tangent receives the full-video spotlight it deserves.
But there's plenty more architectural and art-historical analysis where that came from. So if this kind of thing seems fun, please comment and let me know!
SOURCES & Further Reading: "Francesco's Venice" by Francesco Da Mosto, "A History of Venice" by John Julius Norwich, "Renaissance Architecture" via Britannica, and many many many hours spent staring at buildings in Italy.

I have no personal interest in a lot of the topics you cover - I enjoy listening to the mini lectures (and would enjoy longer form videos!!) regardless of what subject you choose to speak on. In essence, please feel free to drop those Opinion Videos lol

Blue, I would love to hear you rant about historical fiction TV shows that live within your special interests; this video made me think of The Borgias and DaVinci's Demons, specifically, because there's a bit in The Borgias where the pope decides to restore some ancient Roman ruins and DaVinci's Demons, of course, Florence. Any chance of a rant, even if it's "AAAAAAAAAAAAAA THIS SHOW DRIVES ME NUTS"? :)

does anyone know if Venice ever ran into the problem dutch architects ran into that was "more marble would be great but our building would start to sink"? looked it up. appears as if Venice was more lucky then the netherlands in regards to the piles they build on. in Venice they rest on hard clay, in places like Amsterdam they rest on sand. in Venice they effectively petrified thanks to the extreme silt and soil of the water, a boon places like Amsterdam didn't have. (i now also know that if i want to buy a house in amsterdam i need to check with the city council if they have knowledge on the quality of the poles the house rests on, thanks osp for me maybe making sure in the future my house doesn't sink)

The only building that I know right now that is being built in the neoclassical style is the berilin city palace. The palace is a baroque style but You could check it out, and I think they will finish this year also if you want to you can donate them money so they can finish the project. Just wanted to tell people that there is small classical projects being built and I hope this excites you.

omg I love this. I think the only thing Paladio forgot were colors (well, he didn't have microscopes and fancy chemical analysis as we do) and now our understanding of Classical Architecture is skewed and we think they had shiny white marble buildings when they were lavishly colored. Thanks for your awesome videos!

I love architecture, and your take is so good. Since you like Venice (and it had a seperate style of gothic) you could make a video on Gothic (I know there is very different gothics, from the Flemish to the French and to the venetian. But that could make a series of their own :) )

I know Blue has covered a lot of Italian history already, but this video has me wishing he'd do one on the Guelfi vs. Ghibellini feud that has them so opposed to each other that even the architectural flourishes on their buildings had to be different.

I don't think ANYONE would expect videos purely about architecture from a channel (or, well, half of a channel) which has exclusively been about history so far, but...I really like this! I'm usually kinda "meh" about architecture, but you really managed to get me REALLY EXCITED about it here, and I think that's precisely what OSP has always been about, from the very beginning! So yeah, I strongly support more architecture videos ( pun intended).

Once again Blue, you show that you have always belonged in the world of OSP. Fascinating, entertaining, and with a contagious passion. Go ahead, nerd out about buildings or whatever again in the future. It's the kind of thing that just listening to someone else be happy and excited about something makes other people happy.
