“Lost raison d'être”
Reviewed 28 April 2014

The piazza's magnificent, with its loggias and the Palazzo dei Priori, but like many piazzas in Italy (especially in the Marches for some reason), it struggles to find a raison d'être in a world where people spend much of what free time they have sitting in front of the television, conduct their social lives by telephone or text message, prefer to do their shopping in supermarkets and centri commerciali, and move around, insulated from the world and the weather, by car.
