The ‘chiuso per ferie’ signs disappear and business owners open up shop after a month’s break (at least in the oltrarno). The streets begin to fill with people in the mornings and early evening before dinner, and dogs — so many dogs. Students can be seen everywhere, starting their study abroad experience, waiting for gelato, in line for groceries at Conad, I…
