This closeup was shot at a special night-time visit of the Specola (see my other ), a medieval tower in Padova that was turned, in the late 17th century, into an observatory.

In a citywide effort to support green-economy, just for that night (last friday, 15/02/2013) the tower kept all its lights off and was, instead, candlelit, deepening the feeling of living a truly medieval experience.
