The square is relatively empty considering the time, and the fountain is off. It is quite a still evening. Scooters and sparse shouts echo off the almost unbroken line of building facades, and it is possible to hear the approximate dimensions of the space. While none of the of the surfaces around the square are in any way absorbent, the comparative size of the two main axes (especially facing the Basilica) coupled with the completely open area above means that the reverberations do not become too oppressive, but are ever-present.
