      Isn’t this the same woman as in the yellow shorts? The pictures sure look similar. What is the coffee to go controversy? I don’t get that. Its the same lady, I think.

        Yes, yellow shorts lady from the other day. She does a lot of window shopping.

    Coffee in a to-go cup in Italy? Is that unusual?

    I don’t think I’ve ever seen anyone in Italy, especially in your photos, drinking coffee on the go. I feel like that is a very ‘American’ concept, whereas the norm in Europe is to leisurely enjoy a cup of coffee out of a MUG at a table in a cafe.

    On a side note: I would kill for her hair.

    There’s a face in the window display. Or at least it feels like it’s looking at me.

      yes, i saw that too. but it got complete with the line produce by the variation of thickness? in the Wall/column.

      and the shoes, for some? reason., seem…

  14. Christine

    May 20, 2014 at 4:23 pm

    Please tell me this was early morning…that’s the ONLY way you can come close to justify the coffee in her hand. If Italian coffee culture dies, I will mourn for the rest of my life….and I’m usually a tea drinker!

    The coffee in the take-away cup. The lady must not be from Milano!

  26. Nora

    May 20, 2014 at 4:34 pm

    Is it the coffee to go? Italians don’t typically carry coffee around. They sit and drink it (or stand at the counter) in a cafe instead.

  27. Emily

    Is it that she has a regular/filter coffee, as opposed to an espresso? When I was in Bologna, I could not find drip, filter coffee anywhere!

    It is slightly unusual from my own experience in Italy (mostly Florence and Rome) to see people on the street with paper coffee cups! Much more congenial to have an espresso at the bar. But. Starbucks reigns, no?

    • paula

      May 24, 2014 at 3:29 pm

      well.. im not from USA and in my country nobody goes to a Starbucks and drink their coffee while they are walking.. they buy the coffee and then maybe they go to another place.. an office or drink in the same Starbucks.. I’ve never get that thing od drink coffee while you go to another place.. so weird.. coffee have to be enjoyed!! same with other beverages as tea or mate

      • maryse

        June 17, 2014 at 1:30 pm

        as someone with ties to both france and the US i love coffee to go. because i don’t want to be stuck sitting at a cafe or worse at a counter, gulping down my espresso because i’d rather be walking around seeing the world around me, or sitting in a park. i think there’s room for both.

    I’d say the problem with this picture is that most Italians don’t drink their coffee out of a paper cup on the street.

    May 20, 2014 at 5:36 pm

    The only one single thing that seems unusual to me is the paper coffee cup that this lovely lady is holding in her hand!! Which reminds me of starbucks that unfortunately does not exist neither in milan nor in the rest of the country..is it because i really miss starbucks’ coffee?? But, sincerely, it is quite rare to see someone around in milan having his/her coffee in this way..

    The woman is incredibly flat-footed, she appears to only have one arm and there is no reflection of her in the display window.

    is there a Sturbucks in Milan? I hope beacuse I loved Sturbucks coffee during my last USA travel. So dressed and with that hair she looks like Ali MacGraw in Love Story…!

    Well I live in Milan and I would NEVER, like NEVER EVER drink cafe to go. I actually think is considered a sin here.

    Everything she is wearing is black and white but she is looking at a window display full of colour, probably not what is unusual about this photo but couldn’t help but notice.

    As Rocky McCorkle has already noticed she is wearing all black and white (even her hair is black) and also her surrounding is entirely black/white/grey (except the golden plates). It seems like she is looking into and longing for a different world full of color. Nice contrast!

    What an enigmatic question to what appears to be a very straightforward photo.

    I have searched and searched – left to right, top to bottom, diagonally, vertically, horizontally… this is like those word games where you have to find the last word in the grid of dozens of letters (not a crossword puzzle), and you can’t find it — and you know that it’s probably staring straight at you.

    It’s simultaneously frustrating and fun.

    And I can’t wait to hear the answer!

    The legs! There’s something very esher-esque about her legs.
    Her body angle doesn’t accord with the way her legs stand.
    It almost looks like her legs are crossed but they’re not…

    One of her legs is shorter than the other and both her feet are too long :)

    She doesn’t reflect, so she must be the devil in Chanel.

    Its the same woman as in the picture below with the yellow shorts. Again looking in the window of a store. The one with the tattoo on her foot. Seriously, are people blind? Or am I crazy?

    Her dress has a small tear in the back? It could be a romper or a slit but I couldn’t think of anything else :)

    Her entire ensemble is B&W (and window shopping for very colorful stuffs)

    She is neither smoking or on the phone- very unusual for your subjects.

    One of the window display spotlights (the bottom one) is pointing the wrong way – outside rather than towards the window display.

    There’s an eye embroidered on the bag.
    She is watching a bag, and the bag is staring at her in return!

    Creepy…

    Carrying a coffee cup on the streets of Milan? Wouldn’t have guessed it…
    I got lost deciding whether or not I liked her shoes… haha (I do BTW…)
    But of course, coffee to go in Italy, very unusual…

    Cova might be (have been) a bastion of Italian coffee culture, but it was bought last year by luxury conglomerate LVMH.
    Is the paper cup an (unwelcome) side effect of globalisation?

    Is it the light (shadow) or are the soles of her feet very dirty. Still, when you are this beautiful, who cares!

    Look at her soles, sooooo black

    I agree with Scott. It’s strange…It’s a disaster! What Scott has noticed isn’t a good new. True Italian coffee is one of the best things that our country can offer. Why should we become like in the U.S.A. or in other places? No, it isn’t a good new.

    I can’t believe she is Italian…

    In any case, there is not any Starbucks in Italy…

    Sorry, but we don’t need it…. :-)

    That’s funny, the only thing I noticed “amiss” was the coffee cup, so I guess I was right. In all of my time spent in Europe, I’ve never seen anyone walking around with a coffee cup in their hand, like you see everywhere here in the States. (Although I’ve seen Starbucks in London and in Paris!) I wonder if this is going to become a “thing” in Europe.

    I don’t believe it! Is there even a term for coffee to go in Italian??

  179. maria-firenze

    May 26, 2014 at 8:50 am

    C’mon!! this is not coffee-to-go, I mean, the cup is too big, this must be a cappuccino-to-go. that means, cappuccino take away, when you’re late and you can’t stop or you want to bring a cappuccino to a friend (I used to do it a lot with my roomate!!). it’s not so unusual, it’s simply a cappuccino on the street. Every good cafè in Italy has this kind of cups!

    Yes, there are some walls in the window. Maybe she is looking at some home decoration shop ;)

    I actually thought it was the monochrome of the girl vs. the colourfulness of the window she is shopping. But the take-away coffee makes sense :-)

    We also have coffee to go in Europe. Actually I’m from Spain and yes, we also use it (not only from Starbucks) and we don’t drink always “Cafe solo” or “Cortado” sitting at the bar !

    You can also get REAL american coffee to go nonetheless (crazy I know) at The Bagel Factory that is run by a man who moved to Milan from Boston at the Porta Ticinese. As well as lattes and the likes to go as well. Saddening, but true.

    All I see is such a ‘black and white’ girl looking at such a colorful window….such a contrast!
