What a beautiful and large piazza. It was a little cool with the wind blowing, but we enjoyed ourselves anyway.
There is something about the space, the human-scale architecture, the consistency of design (imposed by the Council of 9 some 500 years ago), and the light that makes il Campo a relaxing place to hang out.
