Piazza Santo Spirito, a typical Italian town square in the Oltrarno section of Florence, Italy.

"The Piazza of Santo Spirito, once home to the School of St. Augustine, has often been called a theater and was perhaps intended as one. Even when the piazza is not the stage for political rallies or avant-garde mummers, it is a theater and, in spite of its size, an intimate one: In the morning produce is sold from carts under striped umbrellas, and in the afternoon used clothes are sold; and lovers stroll all the time, old people warm their bodies in the sun, children play ball (in spite of a plaque dated 1639 that forbids playing ball). The square has always served a communal function. For one of the most beautiful of all churches to gaze with its single deep-eyed window over such homely activities is the very essence of sincerity and charm." (Barbara Grizzuti Harrison: Italian Days, 1998).
