Walled City South: The Piazza Italia

[click for larger images]

Probably this is as far south as Meredith normally walked in the city.

Likely she walked to this spot many evenings, as almost everyone does. The sunset (bottom shot) is a major, major draw.

The Piazza Italia is at the south end of the high butte as this shot shows. These first shots are of the famous views south, toward Rome.

They are something to really linger over, as many people do, and their mood changes constantly. And there seem to be many small free events at night under the trees and along the balustrade there. Art shows, musicians and the like. 

At bottom here, the ornate Palazzo del Governo for the provence of Umbria.

A magical area at night. As Meredith surely knew.
