Piazza del Campo (1349), Centre Pompidou (1977)

Visited Siena last Sunday for the first time. One of the nicest cities where there is "nothing" to see, like in bloody (and overrated, and dirty, and crowded) Florence, except for the city itself. Siena is not a city to go and see things, but to enjoy the atmosphere, a place to stay, a small city to be in. To sit and let the time fly away, and fade...

The Piazza del Campo was paved in 1349, and it has a kind slope. A similar slope is in front of Parisian Centre Pompidou. Who knows if that is a coincidence or not.
