The vibrant hue of colours used to paint buildings in Rome

I found the vibrant hue of colours used to paint buildings and apartment blocks in Rome to be so pleasing to the eye.  What a brilliant idea to paint the buildings interesting shades of terracotta (from the Italian words meaning baked earth), ochre and other colours.  It gives the streets an elegant theatrical atmosphere and one feels as if one is walking on a stage set.
