Finally...!

The square where I live is finally open to the public again after 6 months of works, trucks, sand, bricks, stones and dust everywhere. I had previously published a photo (tic...tic...tic...) where the workmen worked on the pavement laying stone by stone. I had given them wine in the freezing cold winter so that they could warm themselves. The final result is stunning. I can overlook the newly made fountain from where I live (from the old balcony of the white building on the right) and enjoy sheer silence (no cars and motorcycles are allowed anymore!) and the magic lights of the fountain itself. The noise of water falling? Soft and pleasant in comparison with the noise of roaring motors of cars at all hours of the day and night. It was all worth it!

Magical!

Very inspiring that it's sometimes possible to remake a public space resulting in slowing it all down.
