Siena, Piazza del Campo

This huge square is the central public space in Siena, a wonderful city that would be even better if they would move the last few cars out of it.

The photographer is standing with his back close to the buildings that surround the side of the square that we do not see here. Its character is quite similar to what is visible.

This square is a huge bowl that drains down along the white rays to an enormous storm drain at the focus of the rays.

While this is a very large space, it is full of people on a warm afternoon.

The extraordinary Gaia fountain can be seen on the left in the middle distance.
