Steve’s love of the Mercato Centrale led to his painting of it for over thirty years. “The beauty of the market captured me!” Generations of amazing people have lived an amazing lifestyle of building lifelong relationships through providing the daily food for their neighbors – from fresh produce, to locally caught fish, to meats and cheeses. Crafters and businesses of all types lined the streets with their wares in front of their stores, leading to the market place. Residents and tourists alike shopped daily for the meals of the day, enjoying the seasonal selection.
