Beautiful Siena cloaked in medieval brick buildings with red tiled roofs and known internationally for its "Palio" annual horse race in the Piazza del Compo is a UNESCO World Heritage Site that will leave you gob smacked. The town that everyone rushes to when in Italy, not just to see the horses run, but to indulge in its incredible food, peek at its art and meander around its museum. It's like stepping back in time the moment you put a foot into this medieval cityscape. Its Piazza del Compo is wall-to-wall restaurants for the tourists, whilst the good restaurants hide down alleys that fan off the square. With 17 historic districts extending outward from the piazza it's easy to get lost and plenty of fun doing so. You can gawk at its Gothic town hall, check out the 14th Century tower of Torre del Mangia and poke your nose into artisanal boutiques or have mouth-watering sensations merely walking past a pastry shop. The Tuscan hilltop city of Siena has now taken to heart coworking for its locals who have no wish to leave their fairytale home for the smog of a big city just to get some work done.
The oldest bank still in existence "Monte dei Paschi di Siena" operating since 1472 has its headquarters in Siena, plus there is a research plant that is a part of Glaxo Smith Kline. Its university spills thousands of students and graduates onto its cobblestoned alleys and in the last 10 years, Siena has been completely wired with fibre optic cable making it the first city in Italy to do so. Italians have creative culture in their blood, from food to fashion, design to wine and there are plenty of innovative tech savvy souls lingering over espressos. Major tech players such as IBM and Apple are opening up new tech hubs alluding to the fact that there is loads of potential in the Italian market. The government is instigating new initiatives to make it easier for startups to "start up" in light of the fact that it has always had a reputation for being bureaucracy-heavy.
Siena may not be the tech hub on a par with Turin, Milan or Rome, but it does have its locals who have no desire to move from their beautiful home city, plus there are the meandering globetrotters with laptops in their backpacks that linger longer than they should in this stunning area. Coworking venues are giving them the space to mingle, to connect and to collaborate in one of the most stunning cities Italy has to offer where they can run out the door and grab some panforte whenever the urge takes hold.
