Via Etnea is a good street.
It is 8pm. People walking by. All ages. Mostly locals and some tourists. Some stores open, some closed. 3 story buildings, very tall. Generous space for pedestrians. By the look of it all buildings are occupied over the shops. Some apartments, some hotels and some offices.
It was built in 1693 under the direction of Duca di Camastra, after an earthquake destroyed great part of the city. It is now one of the most populated streets in the city.
And I will now eat my bruschetta, while i study the program of tomorrow's conference.
