I did all my shopping at the Via Sannio flea market and a boutiques on Via del Boschetto: five gauzy, sari dresses and a silk scarf. Everything I bought was made in India, which I sort of felt guilty about, until I read that "Indians are the Italians of Asia".
Could Italians also be the Asians of Europe? I think living in Berlin has opened me up to the poetic simplicity of stereotypes.
