• Short Summary

    The ancient towers of San Dominiano in Tuscany are compared with the Manhattan skyline.

  • Description

    Titles read: "There's Nothing New under the Sun. Surely the giant towers of Manhattan, the famous Skyline of New York, are really something new in the world - But are they? Just watch."

    San Dominiano, Tuscany, Italy.

    Various shots of the ancient town of San Dominiano near Tuscany, showing the several high towers built on palace buildings as defences against siege.

    New York, United States of America.

    Several good aerial and skyline shots of the skyscrapers (including Empire State Building) of the Manhattan skyline, to compare with the Italian town. L/S of Manhattan shows an airship flying overhead (brief).

    Note: cannot find definitive spelling - Dominiano / Domingiano.
