Hey all! This is a short entry with plenty of pictures. For more from this adventure, check out Sideways Sweets.

My first look at Gorizian culture continued that day, leading us to a square near where I would discover to be the University. The festival opened up into an open-air market with summer clothes, bakeware, knick-knacks, and our favorite–Italian sweets.

A brief introduction into the array of sweets offered in Italy.

I am not sure where this guy came out of the woodwork because I haven’t seen a shop around town like this since, but he was here that day with a fantastic array of classic Italian pastries and sweets. Here is a look:

Marzipan fruits. Not real ones, but a fantastic doppleganger.

Fragola. I have yet to try this pastry.

Sfogliatina nutella and some fig-newton lookin' things.

The spread of the sweets under the tent.

I ended up having a marzipan cherry and the sfogliatina nutella.
