Several pedestrians walk along a narrow sidewalk along a downtown apartment complex on a fine day in Italy. They curiously examine a handful of shops that are open for the day, which are selling a variety of clothes and other merchandise. The men and women are dressed in finely tailored clothing, mainly skirts and high-waist trousers with collared blouses and jackets. Outside the leftmost store, a women's polka-dot dress is on display beside the entrance, and a man dressed in a collared shirt with trousers and suspenders stands patiently beside his shop table as he waits for customers to approach. His stand is lined with beautiful clothing and fabrics, which will certainly catch the eye of the fashion-savvy pedestrians wandering the street.
