pictures from my first ever visit to Siena, in 1998

taken with an early digital camera - click on the thumbnails to see larger versions


the Rosario, outside Giorgio's
front door


Duomo from the Piano dei Mantellini


a drummer of the
Comparsa of the Snail

piccolomini arms
on one of their palaces


spectators watch the Comparsa pass

lining up on the steps of the Duomo...

... and gossiping

Palazzo Pubblico
at the time of a Prova

looking down on the Campo

Via di Citta from the facciatone

the Comparsa gets
ready in costume
