Photographer's Note

Tartini Square is the main square of Piran, named after famous (actually, not so famous) violinist, composer and music theorist Giuseppe Tartini, who was born in Piran but spent most of his adult life teaching music in Italy. Tartini's most famous work is the "Devil's Trill Sonata", a solo violin sonata that requires a number of technically extremely difficult double stop trills. A popular legend holds it that Tartini had six digits on his left hand, making these trills easier for him to play.

The square was once a small inner dock. Silted up and obsolete, the dock was eventually cleared of debris, filled, redeveloped and turned into city's most fashinable square at the end of XIX century. One of the old warehouses is now the Hotel Giuseppe Tartini. Tartini's birthday is celebrated by a concert in the main town cathedral.
