Italy is still quite a traditionalist country, it is especially in the South of the Stivale: many shops close at lunch time and reopen around 4pm, the morning coffee, the breakfast at the bar with the cappuccino and cornetto, etc. There are a lot of these things that – luckily for most – still resist and are really a huge part of the culture.

In today’s Black&White Wednesday photo, I go back to Gaeta and to its small streets where these two women were hanging out the freshly washed linens. Truly, you can see best the women on the right, but if you look better you can see the arm of the second woman on the left terrace.

I can imagine how a few moments before they might have been talking about weather, about cooking recipes or their kids maybe. Gaeta is a small town (20500 people live there) and obviously not everyone knows everyone, but I guess neighbors so close do often talk when they accidentally bump into each other at the window… It is nice to think that people still keep their traditions and human connections…
