Small Italian city

An example of the sharp city/country divide often seen in Italy and other long-settled European areas. The important thing to notice is the complete absence of anything like low-density suburbia (and particularly cul-de-sacs). You can see this absence in some of the very smallest farm-towns in the US as well, but once you get at least a couple thousand people in a community, there will nearly always be patches of low-density fringe.
