A couple of years ago Ruth and I led another private photo tour around Tuscany, Italy. I’m just now processing through all the images from that trip, and this is one of my favourites so far.
This photograph was made from the roof terrace at the top of our lovely hotel. It dramatically portrays the skyline accented by the dome of the Siena Duomo (main cathedral) and Torre del Mangia (Tower of the Eater). According to Wikipedia, the tower name refers to its first bellringer, Giovanni di Balduccio, nicknamed Mangiaguadagni (‘eat-the-profits’, or, ‘profit eater’) for his spendthrift tendency or his idleness or gluttony.
