Does This Look Just Like Siena, Italy, to You?

I saw this website promo for The Siena, in Montclair, NJ and just had to chuckle. The promo says the building is “inspired by Tuscany” and has a photo of the Palazzo Pubblico in Siena.  Having lived part-time in Italy for 17 years, I have a pretty good idea what Siena (and Tuscan buildings, in general) look like. Light yellow stucco exterior building walls, green window shutters, red barrel-tile roofs, terra-cotta courtyards.  You can read more about it here.

Here is the Montclair version:

Here is a picture of the Palazzo Pubblico in Siena:

Do you see the similarity?
