Viva Italia

I am writing this as  I sit on my balcony overlooking the Piazza Cisterna in San Gimignano.  

 It is market day and the vendors are set up for a busy morning. 

We are relaxing after a very late night attending our first Andrea Bocelli concert in The Teatro de Silenzio. We watched the production of Puccini’s opera, Turandot. It was a multi media event performed under the stars and a full moon in an open air theater. There was a full orchestra conducted by Zubin Mehta,  a 75 member chorus, ornate costumes and outstanding musical performances by all.

It was certainly a memorable experience and we are ready for the next concert tomorrow. Today we are going to visit tthe charming hill town of Pienza and “bella” Siena as I heard it referred as this morning.
