VENICE by KRISS on 19 march 2016

In no other part of the world except the south east of France (which used to be Italian on occasions during its history), will you see this very Italian custom : Hanging clothes from the windows.

But why ? I mean, there are many other countries which climate and architecture allows for such method of natural drying.
Spain for instance is where we are right now and no one does hang their clothes from the windows.
There are patios, terraces, roof tops and special areas at the back of buildings to hang the clothes but no one hangs their shirts and towels from the windows on the streets.

In my opinion this reflects a lot on the difference between mentalities between Spain and Italy.
When I come to think of it, both languages are very close, both climates are very close, both people are loud and exuberant, both countries are not that far away but there is a huge difference between the Italian and the Spanish way.


And this image of shirts hanging from a window is a good illustration of that difference and I will leave it at that because the photo speaks for itself and I have too little knowledge of the Spanish and the Italians (although both bloods run through my veins) to comment any further.

The rest of the pictures are from a little trip in Venice, Italy.

A propos du linge étendu , je ne peux répondre au " Why " mais in the " south east of France " ce ne sont vraiment pas que les gens du cru , les " étendeurs " !
