Mmm... random thoughts on Discworld and Italy.  
Number one: Ankh-Morpork is based muchly on Florence. Bet you're thinking "Well, duh" but it wasn't apparent to me until I was actually there. *snorts* Medici, Dentistri, and Vetinari indeed...

Number two: Despite being based more on Florence and its history, I think Rome actually looks and feels more like Ankh-Morpork.

Number three: This statue of Machiavelli makes me think Vetinari. It's not a very good picture, but I know when I saw it I went "Havelock?"

Number four: Trevor, you fool! Read more Discworld so we can babble even more about it! >__
Current Mood: excited
Current Music: Gladiator - Main Theme (Trance Mix)

Yes, the statue does look like how I think Vetinari looks, but I have always connected them to each other.

(I am reading Night Watch right now ^____^)

Yeah, Machiavelli and Vetinari go together like... um... like two people who really, really go together. Right...

And Night Watch is... mmm. Young Vetinari, young Vimes, lilacs, weird plot, fun for all.

Oooh, the statue is very much Havvie. That glint in Niccolo's eye always caught my attention.
