Northern Italy. I’ve always liked the view of this square through the portico. It’s really hard to photograph but I’ll keep trying. It’s even more special at night time when the Duomo is lit up. It almost feels like a stage set. The way the curve of the arch is echoed on the pebbled walkway gives a nice symmetry. Italians seem to love their rucksacks, or “zaino” as they refer to them. The kids all have these fondant-fancy coloured ones that they personalise. I thought it was quite funny that the old man in the foreground was carrying one like the kids in the background.
