Today’s photo of the Palacio Barolo building in Buenos Aires was sent to us by our Contributing Editor, Ana. She has added this description:

Luis Barolo, an Italian industrialist, moved to Argentina in 1890. He later
hired architect Mario Palanti (1885-1979) to design and build and apartment
building in the Art Nouveau style inspired by Dante’s Divina Commedia.
When it was finished in 1923, the 22 storey building was the tallest in
Latin America. Today, this historic building is a landmark of the city of
Buenos Aires.
