Piece by piece, the historic ex Pavesi motorway restaurant in Montepulciano (Siena), one of the “bridging” ones on the motorway, is coming down. One of the distinctive features of this piece of Valdichiana, part of a small American dream of the 60s conceived by the architect Angelo Bianchetti, had been stopped since 2018 due to structural problems, and after demolition it will leave room for the new rest area, side of the highway, as it is done today. “We will miss him”, says those who came to see the works. “I have the restaurant next door, we were born a few years later, my heart cries”.
