    Sad. I don’t like watching sports on tv. But I’m game to attend in person. There’s a certain energy in a stadium. I’m afraid people are becoming hermit crabs. But I have hope that people will keep the human connection and experience alive.

    Also, let’s talk about architecture. Italy has such a rich history that today is still very ingrained in daily life. It creates more authentic cities with character and beauty. It’s no mistake that artists draw inspiration from worn beauty. In the U.S. we are lacking historic architecture

In the U.S. we are lacking historic architecture - it makes sense that we would search for other ways to recreate that sense of place and character.
