The fresco of good and bad is well worth studying for a while.
As I thought about the lessons offered by this many layered allegory I wandered to the back balcony of the palazzo and looked out over piazza Mercato and the wonderful fields beyond, then, curious, I went to the front and looked through a window down on the campo where I saw many people looking smiling and happy, just like in the fresco.
Determined to live as romantic a life as possible it occurred to me that Siena itself might have learnt a thing or two from the fresco.
(If you ever get a chance to see choral recital in the courtyard- take it. An encore rendition of "O Fortuna" still gives me goosebumps every time I think of it.")
