Siena & il Duomo

    Newer Older

    E questo è come si presenta il Duomo, con veduta alle porte della città.
    Siena ti accoglie così, con questo colpo d'occhio eccezionale, il brunito delle case medioevali, così arroccate, in forte contrasto con il Duomo che sembra così irraggiungibile, su, sopra il colle a sovrastare la città.
    Riallacciandomi al discorso di ieri sul progetto incompiuto, guardatelo bene come è oggi... incredibile pensare che esso rappresentava solo un transetto di quello Nuovo! (!!già un misero transetto!! Non una navata! Un transetto!!..infatti l'incompiuta navata era posta in perpendicolare..) Che opera sarebbe stata! Ma è comunque una grande opera, bella anche così, imponente anche così.
    Buon weekend!! !!!

    p.s.: no non ho finito con Siena..ti pare che non vi porto in Piazza del Campo? :)

    And this is how the Duomo looks like, the view from "city's doors" (expression correct?).
    Sienna welcoming you with this wonderful glimpse, the brown of the medieval houses, castled in that beautiful way, in strong constrast with the Duomo that seems so unreachable, up, over the hill overhanging the city.
    Linking me to the issue of yesterday, of the undone project.. Look carefully how is the Duomo today...it's incredible thinking that it (yes the Duomo all) rappresented only a transept of the new one projected! (!!yes, a transept!! Not a nave! A transept !! Infact the incomplete part is posted in perpendicular..) What an opera house would have been! But it's anyway a great opera house, beautiful also like this, imponent also like this.
    Buon weekend!! !!!

    p.s.: no, I haven't finished with Siena...you're thinking really that I won't bring you in Piazza del Campo? :)
