Photographer Benjamin Grant has set off on a mission to change the way we see our planet with his stunning photo project – Daily Overview.

Palmanova, Italy

45.904892400°, 13.317671100°. Here’s one of my favorite images from the ‘Where We Design’ chapter in “Overview”. The town of Palmanova, Italy is recognized by its concentric layout known as a star fort. The rationale for this construction was that an attack on any individual wall could be defended from the two adjacent star points by shooting the enemy from behind. The three rings that surround Palmanova were completed in 1593, 1690, and 1813.
