This fabulously unique work by the Milan based, Italian artist Paolo Canetti captures the end of a busy market day. Goods are stored and boxes stacked as awnings are brought down and shutters closed on the market stalls. Whether it be the Rialto market in Venice, Florence's Mercato Centrale or the BallarĂ², Vucciria and Borgo Vecchio of Palermo the mercati are an integral part of Italian life.
