I'm working on a project regarding the fountains throughout Siena. Not only did they connect to underground canals to provide water for the city, they're also really pretty! And they give me an excuse to leave my desk and wander outside to enjoy this beautiful day we're having :) Stella confirmed yesterday that spring is indeed on its way, due to the fact that birds have returned to chirping relentlessly outside her window.
Fonte Nuova d'Ovile
Pigeons drinking from the spigot. A note on Sienese pigeons: they are the worst. Similar to squirrels in Charlottesville, they are not afraid of getting in your personal space.
A rare sight in Siena...vegetation!
