This is the main square of San Gimignano, a small medieval town in Tuscany. In the afternoon the old towers and walls of the buildings are colored in warm colors: ocher, sienna, madder lake … visitors mingle with citizens in a single river of souls that wander indiscriminately on the streets paved with stone. Suddenly the lady with the hat turned highlighting the face hit by a ray of sunshine. It was only a moment but that little white spot was enough to give life to the scene. (Questa è la piazza principale di San Gimignano, una piccola città medievale in Toscana. Nel pomeriggio le antiche torri e i muri dei palazzi si tingono di colori caldi: ocra, terra di siena, lacca di garanza… i visitatori si confondono con i cittadini in un unico fiume di anime che si aggirano indistintamente sulle vie lastricate di pietra. Improvvisamente la signorina col cappello si voltò mettendo in luce il volto colpito da un raggio di sole. Fu solo un attimo ma quella piccola macchia bianca fu sufficiente a dare vita a quella scena.)
