Italian Main Square Concrete And Terracotta Planters - Summer 2022
I came across these planters in the town of Val d'Elsa in Northern Italy this Summer (photo below) that are what I think are municipal planters that serve as both traffic deterrents, pedestrian protection and beautification in one package. See below for the photo showing the pair that feature concrete bases, metal uprights (that keep the container centered) and cylindrical terracotta containers. Pretty neat, right?
I was really drawn to these - I like the containers - but also the ingenuity. They're heavy, so they can't be moved. The containers are also protected by the iron pipes. I've drawn some gardening inspiration before from European gardens, so I'm adding this to that list.
