In the artist's own words: “This image captures a rare time in Ascoli Piceno just after a day of rain in the main piazza, Piazza del Popolo. The ground cover consists of travertine marble, which when wet becomes mirror ike, refecting a spectacular image within the ground. The travertine lies in constrast with the black cobblestone in the foreground which aids in reinforcing the power of the objects within the middle of the frame.”
