    It’s an unsettling/unfriendly pattern; I’d guess it was deliberately designed to make people hurry across to get away from it. The bleak greys and white add to the chilling effect. This Square is certainly not a place I’d be tempted to linger. Perhaps that’s the idea? It doesn’t compare favourably with the warm terracottas so often found in welcoming mediterranean piazzas.

    • A grey February day made this square even less pleasing. It’s a place you just walk from one side to the other. Nothing stops you there.
