Siena? Siedonna.

OK, my wife points out that I kinda shorted this blog, so here are some pictures I took.  The photo which looks a bit like a giant pepper grinder, is in fact a dual purpose public lighting system from the middle ages. The device held torches at night and at other times the sharp points on top held the severed heads of defeated opponents.
