    “”Some info: the authors are Michelangelo and Raffaello Rubino. The entire model is 27 square meters, 1 ton of Montelupo Fiorentino’s clay used for the 774 buldings.
    It is a faithful reconstruction, thanks also to the help of the University of Siena, of the city of San Gimignano as it appeared in the 1300s, with all 72 tower-houses for which it was already famous at that time”

    I want to see the support under the table.

    Tired is enough.

    I reckon it is 3 tons of Montelupo Fiorentino’s clay

    In that case I hope it’s being diplayed on the ground floor.

    Haha, I love it!
    Can you imagine how many minis would be lost playing on that thing?😋
    Really inspirational, makes me want to build some terrain.

    Cheers,

    Never wrestle with a pig. You both get muddy and the pig just likes it.

    I’ve been to San Giminano and it’s a wild scene.  Those towers made great places to shoot crossbows at men thinking of marrying your daughter without permission, from what I’m told.

    Not convinced I could reach the middle of the table but would really love to try.

    While it’s true that the rubbish, the mud, lepers and the smells are all absent, it still has to be said that Medieval towns were many times more eye-appealing than modern ones. An incredible work of art!

    Unbelievable!  What a beauty.  I’m in awe.

    PS.  The moment I looked at the skyline, I immediately recognized that it was San Gimingano.  I love that city.
