Lots of digging.

Looks to be a rather massive job. But I bet it will be very nice once it is done and a fine addition to Livorno's already considerable charm!

That is a big project. I think you mentioned it awhile back.
It would be fun to go watch it and be a sidewalk superintendent. MB

That looks to be a big job! You'll have to show us what it looks like when they are done.

Once it's done, we can forget about the concrete and rebar. I hope it looks old and romantic.
