The Grandí Place in Brussels again. The Hapsburgs built public squares in the same way as Roman emperors built circuses - for theatrical effect and to keep the masses happy. Nowadays itís floral displays, art exhibitions or sport on a giant screen; in 1568 it was the public beheading of rebel Counts Egmont and Hornes.
Egmont went on to star in an overture by Beethoven...
Guests departed last night. Life is returning to what we laughingly call normality...
Thanks for looking,
