  • "Natale Fontana" is a clock shop in downtown Bologna, Italy. The sign says "Since 1909". An old shop surrounded by tens of big fashion stores and modern coffee shops. On that sign there's a clock showing the sharp hour. It's been one hundred and three years since three generations of people make sure that clock does its work on time. The "Guru" fashion store, just across the street, shut down after only five years since his glorious opening day. Make clocks, people, not t-shirts.
