Of course I never went over to ask and I wish I had.
We were in one of squares in Varese last Wednesday and after some indifferent weather and heavy snow the sun was out and it was warm enough to sit outside.
And plenty of people were doing just that. Some had chosen to use the public seating while a similar number had ordered up a drink and in the process attracted friends along with at least two photographers of which I was one.
