The Common Spaces
Also the common environs render the privilege
of a sojourn here. The discreet entrance, the welcoming bar, the elegant lounge
and then the terrace:
your glance over Siena…
An indescribable glance surprising and amazing.
The vision of the gigantic keel of the cathedral,
embraced by the medieval houses,
integrated in disorder on the
bluffs ruling Fontebranda
The life and the rythm of the thousand windows…
The melodic composition of rose and brown
in the gables of the roofs and on the walls of terracotta.
Siena still has its peach-coloured skin as
in the canvas of Duccio or in the frescoes of Ambrogio.
The Relais is the place
where you can hear time breathing:
The voice of Fontebranda,
the chants of the Contradaioli from the Goose and Dragon,
their drums and their bells.
A secret life of a by-gone universe which
sometimes reveals herself
and you can find yourself imagining
Saint Catherine under the arches
in the alley of Galluzza
or following the procession of Pia
Tolomei under the church
of San Domenico beyond the walls
citizens in exile in the Maremma.
