Near the info point, we were fascinated by this diamond concept to advertise the local stores, bars and restaurants. Ain't it a genius idea?

After our wanderings and remembering it was Saturday afternoon, we decided to sit down at a cafe' and relax Italian style: sipping some iced coffee and doing some people watching.
By that time, around 4:30pm, Casale had woken up from its siesta and everybody was strolling down the center, doing window shopping or taking advantage of the sales and then, like us, sitting down at a cafe' for a mid-afternoon chat and snack: somebody got some pastries and a tea, but the majority got some savory finger food with cheeses, cured meats, veggies and a cocktail. After all, it was the Ferragosto week-end and it was the perfect occasion to indulge in great food!
