As you can see in the gallery, the circles were placed in segments over different houses around the town. They only become visible from certain vantage points, which should be quite a dizzying experience as you go by. The whole thing is an art installation by Felice Varini, called "Cercle et suite d'éclats." Oh really? Well, cherchez la Vache to you, laeedee. [Varini via Today and Tomorrow via Core77]
