Here's another look at the interior of the old Italian Village restaurant on State Street. The image is a scan of a postcard in Ann Waidelich's collection.
Looking at it closely, I'm reminded of the many intimate spaces within the Italian Village. Combine that with the memories that were stirred up by Marlene's comments about Casa da Pizza, and I'm in the midst of reconsidering where/how the Italian Village fit into the social scheme. Were you more likely to go there if you had a date? Were you more likely to go there if you were an upperclassman? Would junior high students even dare to enter its doors?
