Un Piccolo Mercato
There is a little market event going on in the Piazza today and they are promoting artisinal products. Our favorite cheese maker is here, along with Guido the butcher, Alberto the ironworker and a few others.
We were all passing the time of day in the piazza, chatting with this person and that person, when we suddenly noticed the piazza was empty….deserted. It took a moment to realize, this is Sunday, it was lunchtime, and everyone was heading home for Buon’Pranzo. Sunday lunch is a very serious business here in Montone! And as we were heading home to our lunch, we noticed this older gentleman settle himself down at one of the café tables. He brought out his bottle of home made wine, a loaf of bread, some cheese and prosciutto, and he looked about as happy as a man can be.
