The setting is the quadrangle of the Uffizi Gallery. It is a public thoroughfare, and I passed through it a couple of times and didn’t realise it was the Uffizi.
These are locals – at least Italians – as I could hear from their conversation that echoed around the building – and I was struck by how relaxed they were eating in public. I may be wrong, but I think that people would be more reticent in a similar setting in the UK.
I love the characteristic movement of the woman sitting, as she illustrates a point she is making.
