Photographer's Note

Piazza Vecchia is the hotspot of Città Alta . Often busy, the place is lined with several notable buildings, the best known is the Palazzo della Ragione (Palace of Reason), from which this photo was taken.

The Palazzo della Ragione once housed the municipal authority. It is surmounted by a tower, the Campanone (meaning big bell).

Opposite, the large white building is the municipal library. On the right you can see the tower of Gombito, which, from its height of 52 meters, offers a remarkable panorama of the whole city and even in clear weather, to Milan.

At the heart of the square is the fountain Contarini, dated 1780.

The picture is composed of two horizontal pictures.
