LaPerla is a well laid out and atmospheric commercial build. The theme is an Italian seaside village -- reminiscent of those on the Amalfi Coast. The commercial aspects of the build distract somewhat from the realism of the place. But viewed from a distance LaPerla is a great build. They say they have concerts and outdoor events there, but I could not find a schedule. Set your sky to evening light; dusk is a great time to visit.
The sim is divided into two parts. I am showing the hilltop village here today, and will be showing the rest of the build -- the more commercial part - tomorrow.
If you love Italy and its's gorgeous architecture I have an exhibition open at Virtual Gay World of Italian Sims in Second Life. I have taken over 25 huge photographs which show how good building in Second Life can be. The exhibit will be open through the month of June 2013 and you can visit it here:
