Just arrived in Carpi and walking the Piazza towards the Duome. This beautiful medieval town with a population of about 70 000, incredible museums, shopping and restaurants, does not appear in any ITALY guide books, and features as only the tiniest dot on the map. As a result of this the five days spent here have given a true glimpse at Italian life, where no English is spoken, no tourists linger with cameras and the main mode of transport in the bicycle. Yet we have had festivals, markets, autheniticiy, friendliness and top Medical Treatment. Carpi has given us all!
