Hanging the laundry outside, to dry, on a clothes line, is something met with persistence and inventiveness by Italians. I believe the accuracy of weather forecasts (still so so in many ways) was somehow improved over the years just in order to answer one of the most basic questione of life itself: shall I hang the laundry out? Will it rain? Will it look good? No… perhaps not the latter question, so ubiquitous have the clothes left in the sun become that they are mostly accepted (perhaps not by everybody) a little bit everywhere, small villages as well as famous landmark towns.
