THE CASTLE OF MONTERIGGIONI


































On sunday we went to Siena and then we spent some hours visiting the Castle of Monteriggioni!)
Monteriggioni is a medieval walled town, located on a natural hillock, in the Siena Province of Tuscany - 
built by the Sienese in 1213 as a front line in their wars against Florence.
The town is architecturally and culturally significant; it hosts several squares, 
and is referenced in Dante Alighieri's "Divine Comedy".
 Both Monteriggioni's exterior walls and the buildings within are some the best preserved in all of Italy, 
attracting tourists, architects, medieval historians and archaeologists. 
The roughly circular walls, totalling a length of about 570 meters and following the natural contours of the hill.
There are fourteen towers on square bases set at equidistance, and two portals or gates.



"però che, come su la cerchia tonda
Montereggion di torri si corona,
così la proda che 'l pozzo circonda
torreggiavan di mezza la persona
li orribili giganti, cui minaccia
Giove del cielo ancora quando tuona"

(Dante Alighieri, Inferno - Canto XXXI)



I wear:
jacket - Terranova
denim shirt - Stradivarius
pullover - Sisley MAN, my husband's closet
jeans - Zara
sneakers - H&M
bag - Stradivarius
sunglasses - H&M
watch - Chronotech
headband - handmade scarf from Georgia
ring - from Venice

    Dovresti poi visitare qualche paesino sul Lago di Garda!
    Se ti fa piacere magari potremmo incontrarci! Io ne sarei davvero felice. Fammi sapere! :D
