Piazza Del Campo Siena
Photograph - Photography
The marvellous Piazza del Campo in Siena, one of the grandest and most beautiful medieval public squares, not just in Italy but across Europe. It is dominated by the soaring Torre del Mangia, one of the tallest and most imposing bell towers in Italy. The photo was taken at dusk and just 12 hours later the area where all the tables and chairs sit was covered in a thick layer of a sand and clay mix in preparation for this year's(2022) bi-annual Palio di Siena - a horse race in which a bunch of horses and riders go hell for leather around the piazza for 90 seconds, vying for honours. Quite mad in many ways but Italy wouldn't be Italy without a touch of madness.
