1130 / Il Campo / Siena // Italy

An old sketch from my favorite square, Il campo at Siena, looking at Mangia tower.

The paving is made of red bricks arranged in fishbone style, divided into a sunburst pattern by nine strips of travertine, one of the characteristics that makes this square so unique.

    And the “confort” at hot sumer nights, Hugo!

  2. I have never been there. I believe there’s an epic horse race there. Am I right?

    • You’re absolutely right! The “Palio”, twice a year. Nevertheless what I really like there is the shape and materials of the square, outlined by fantastic buildings. The accesses to the square under this buildings also make it magical!
