San Gimignano Italian Music Man

I was recently looking through pictures from Italy and came across three videos I took that I’ll publish in segments. Each video offers a different flavor of Italian culture, and a different view of the Italian people.

This first one was taken in a small town near Siena in Tuscany called San Gimignano. This Italian street performer had the coolest music machine where music is cranked out based on a series of dots and holes punched into the cards coming out of the left side of the machine. I’m not really sure how it works but the music was beautiful and the acoustics were perfect with the sound waves reverberating off buildings in the tiny piazza. We grabbed a gelato and enjoyed the noise. Check it out.
