What a peaceful neighborhood

I have visited Landesmuseum in Zurich to see the exhibition on Battle of Marignano from 1515. Its poster is pretty intriguiging as the exhibition itself, where I learnt about significance of this event. Not only that it was a battle for the power of Milan, but also an important stone od Swiss neutrality.

The battle itself was for this time massive. It lasted two days and almost 20.000 died. What struck me was how the field looks today:

… one would imagine, a peaceful city neigborhood.
