I visited a friend in the south of Italy, more specifically Santa Paolina. I didn't care that much for nougat, but now I am a fan. At a request of another friend, my friend took me to this small bakery called "Torrone di Iorio, Pasticceria, 1750" in a nearby town, Montemiletto. I was choosing some nougat to take home as a present, when this lady went to the back and gave me a bag full of fresh made, hard almond nougat, as a sample. It was amazingly good.
They have many different types of nougat according to their hardness(friabili, morbidi), type of nut used (almonds, cashew, walnuts, pistachio) and combinations with other flavors and ingredients (lemon, chocolate, with sponge cake, limoncello, coffee beans, vanilla, honey, rum, fruits, espresso, cereals).
I rotated the shot 2 degrees, cropped and resized it, and increased contrast slightly.

Due buoni torroni....
Una bella scena di vita...artigianale ambientata in un luogo molto gustoso.

Belle photo de cette petite boutique qui semble intemporelle, avec ses beaux casiers, et cette dame qui semble passionnée par ses produits.

I don't know if it is the colours, the light, the uniform or the vintage shop itself, but it seems that everything elements are contributing to create a timeless image. This photo could have come straight from the 60's!...
I like the way you have captured this Italian woman, typically speaking with her hand(s).
