Faenza, Italy

I asked Morena (owner, manager, soundperson, of Il Clandestino, and our host) whether they were feeling the repercussions of the economic downturn in Faenza. She said that they were, a bit, but that it is a rich part of Italy, so it is not too bad. But the region produces many luxury items, such as hand-made ceramics, so of course these things are not selling as well. she said that the real problem is that Italy is making the driving laws more strict right now. "This is really a problem," she said. We didn't have the opportunity to drive anyplace with her at the wheel, so I couldn't form an opinion about this statement, but generally it doesn't seem such a bad idea.
