Where the Guys Meet-Up

When traveling to smaller cities and towns, in the piazzas and at the local bars, you will see men congregating and very few women. (Bars in Italy aren’t like bars here–they are all-day, family-friendly social centers based around cappuccino, espresso, sandwiches and baked goods, soccer broadcasts, and cocktails; hence, not just cocktails.). The home is truly women’s domain, whereas the piazza for men, especially those who are retired or unemployed, is their space. This photo was taken in late morning in Agrigento.
