Tant qu'à faire, aussi bien s'asseoir en plein milieu de la rue. Il semble bien prendre ses aises. Les passants feront le détour. Une belle scène de la vie quotidienne.

This is a very nice photo, reminding me of my first visit to Italy in 1969, when even in parts of central Rome families would use the street as their living room. You have captured the pleasant atmosphere very well, the light is good, there are lots of fine details and the environment is charming.

questo è un sabato qualunque, è un sabato italiano, il resto sembra essere passato....(Caputo)
A parte le parole della canzone, questa scena non ha niente a che vedere con i moderni centri commerciali dove si riuniscono persone di ogni età. Qui è tutto più naturale, a partire dal borgo per arrivare alle persone.

Ahh questa scena e' la cosa piu' bella del tuo paese strabiliante. La gente vivono con uno sguardo alla vita che non abbia mai visto prima. Bellissimo il vicolo ed il senso di familiglia e communita. Anche i fiori sono bellissimi. Complimenti e ti auguro una bellissima settimana.

interesting ancient small town, Silvio, and once again I went to Google-map to locate this place.
Great narrow alley occupied with people some tourists and mostly by local's.
Fine managed light and DOF with good clarity. Chopped the flag atop, but maybe you had not have much available space to raise the camera.
