They sell wine, nectar, spirits, Vin santo, olive oil, fragrant vinegar...

By some coincidence, this adventure has expedited us the strides of significant characters obviously extremely far off from one another, as Leonardo da Vinci, Leo Ferra, and Jack Nicholson. We have almost made this voyage shutting our eyes, simply following two sentences significant that so regularly are overlooked in view of the free for all of our day life: taste and smell.
