People have the Power - Patti Smith
Piazza del Campo, summer 2012
Last summer just when Un Tubo was opening up, we had an aperitif there before Patti Smith's fantastic concert in Piazza del Campo. We were all excited that Siena's town center was starting to get its night life back. If only!
For the time being all we can do is to reminisce. Patti Smith's concert was stellar because she is Patti Smith. But also because of an ambiance on piazza del Campo that no other concert location can possibly measure up to. And even the moon played along.
Who's that looking on behind la Torre del Mangia
Let's hope Patti is right. If people have the power, Siena can't but get more lively again at night.
Update spring 2013: Luckily Un Tubo has reopened using a slightly different concept, but still proposing interesting gigs and fabulous ambiance.
