Even the View Waxes Poetic

Hold on to your flying buttresses: the Milan Cathedral, the 600-year-old Italian Gothic structure, will hold its first concerts on the building’s roof…[for] the first time in more than six centuries

How different would the experience be sitting on a rooftop as opposed to a concert hall? I can imagine very different. The rarity of the experience would make it more acute. The timeline would come into play. I’d be consumed thinking about the concert that happened six centuries ago. Time would revert back. You’d start to envision what different instruments would appear before you. The different sounds. The different horizon line. The music would achieve its ultimate goal: to move you to a different place.
