Artist's description:

A pigeon tower in a secluded garden in Florence, Italy. These towers are the equivalent of the post offices in the Mediteranian and many stil exist in villas scattered around Tuscany to this day. The Republic of Genoa equipped their system of watch towers in the Mediterranean Sea with pigeon posts. It's a sure sign of great antiquity to see a house such as this. In Damietta, by the mouth of the Nile, the Spanish traveller Pedro Tafur wrote about seeing carrier pigeons for the first time, in 1436.
