Daily Gathering

The older gentlemen that always meet up at Piazza Maggiore to discuss politics. They're quite entertaining to watch. In the background is the outdoor movie screen that was set up for summer nights.

The Anatomical Theater

Sharing some insight about the ceiling sculptures with a friend. The wooden sculptures represent the different zodiac signs and were salvaged from the original theater after it was destroyed in the war. I'll try and find a picture of the sculptures.
