Piazza dei Miracoli (Square of Miracles)
The Duomo and The Baptistery. At the right The Leaning Tower

'Standing in a large green expanse, Piazza del Duomo houses a group of monuments known the world over. These four masterpieces of medieval architecture - the cathedral, the baptistry, the campanile (the 'Leaning Tower') and the cemetery - had a great influence on monumental art in Italy from the 11th to the 14th century.'

We vroegen ons af of hij zou zakken. Maar Bunny maakte zich geen zorgen: hij was vreselijk opgewonden over de aanstaande reis naar ItaliŽ, nu zo nabij dat de toren van Pisa 's nachts een donkere schaduw over zijn bed wierp, en hij stond te popelen om uit Hampden te vertrekken en zich te kwijten van zijn familieverplichtingen zodat hij de reis kon aanvaarden.

Vertaald door Barbara de Lange

We wondered if he would fail. But Bunny wasn't worried: the approaching trip to Italy, now close enough to cast the dark shadow of the Tower of Pisa over his bed at night, had thrown him into a state of high agitation and he was anxious to leave Hampden as soon as possible and dispense with his familial obligations so that he could embark.
