So There`s This Place in Italy that Looks Like This from Above...

Every city has its flaws… except maybe for Palmanova, Italy. It was designed by artist and architect Vincenzo Scamozzi, in the shape of star. It’s world renown for its unusual, almost perfect shape. There is something inherently appealing about its concentric citadel or fortress plan and structure.

The “star fort” city is pleasing to people mathematically and aesthetically (and even strategically, if you’re thinking about city defense). How could you not stop in this fortress of a city if you were just passing by?
