Just Cocktail Bar, the journey you don’t expect

Two grandiose mirrored buildings act as a theatre for the scenographic entrance into the streets of the historic centre of Arezzo; they are what remains of the old city walls, but for the inhabitants of Arezzo they are simply “I Bastioni”.

Our ‘Proximity’ Publishing House

If the rise of equality of conditions, as Alexis de Tocqueville has already pointed out, was a historiographical datum and a certainty already in the nineteenth century, the great ideologies of the twentieth century died out and the second millennium passed in the new digital civilization, the state of equality is today pure globalist undifferentiation.
