ITALY - Historic Centre of Siena

"Siena is the embodiment of a medieval city. Its inhabitants pursued their rivalry with Florence right into the area of urban planning. Throughout the centuries, they preserved their city's Gothic appearance, acquired between the 12th and 15th centuries. During this period the work of Duccio, the Lorenzetti brothers and Simone Martini was to influence the course of Italian and, more broadly, European art. The whole city of Siena, built around the Piazza del Campo, was devised as a work of art that blends into the surrounding landscape." -

"Siena is one of the most important town in Tuscany.
The region is charming, so is Siena.
I love this square because it has a special "shell" shape", shares Marta.
Thank you so much again Marta for your wonderful UNESCO cards!
I enjoy each of them... =)
Another cute stamp too... Many thanks!
