Vespatour 2006 Part 7: Pisa

PisaDo you know why they call Field of Miracles the famous square in Pisa where the Duomo, the Baptistery, the Monumental Camposanto and the even more famous Leaning Tower are located?

Because the poet D’Annunzio was so impressed when he saw it that he described it as “Meadow of Miracles” in his 1910’s work “Forse che sì, forse che no”. 🙂

I’ve already been there when I was a child, but on 11 august 2006, after spending the whole day there I built a pleasant memory of the view of the perfectly proportioned buildings and the harmonious spaces among them.

Not to speak of the Tower and the treasures stored inside the Opera del Duomo Museum where I met a guide who explained me the origin of the square’s name and also allowed me to try the PureForm system in the museum.

I hope the 60 photos of the seventh gallery of the Vespatour will give back some of this miracle in Pisa. 🙂
