A portico (from Italian) is a porch leading to the entrance of a building. A roof structure extended over a walkway, supported by columns or enclosed by walls. Porticos have the same use today as they had in Ancient Greece, where they originated. A good portico definition is a covered entrance for the front door that helps accentuate the entry area. Front porches and porticos can dramatically improve the curb appeal of a home.
