There are places outside of time and space. Cross the corner and find the silence. Or rather, "new sounds" that emerge by subtraction. No more engines but leaves moving, birdsong, the water of a river or a canal. But above all, the forgotten sound of footsteps.
The avenue of poplars before the Borgo has the power to exclude not only the mix of loud noises that are the soundtrack to daily life, but to project yourself into another dimension. A dimension where the elements are confusing in their simplicity.
And in fact the Borgo is confusing. It's a place where the statement "time has stopped", which is often abused, fits perfectly. Stopped in the middle ages or so, when the village was built.
