Listen to Mancini!

We've finally found a parking garage in Milan! Well, we've found the entrance.
A man waves, "Go in!" A bell signal. Now we are ... in.

It is a place from long ago. Driveway, walls, doors, windows -- everything old, very old. Just the modern cars disturb the scene. But over there a vintage car and ... Wow! I listen to Mancini! Audrey Hepburn is a few steps from here! I'm sure!

In the staircase a special scent. Audrey?

We leave the parking garage and cross the street.

Passersby --
the old cinema
is closed



Lauschen Sie Mancini!

Endlich haben wir ein Parkhaus in Mailand gefunden! Nun, immerhin die Einfahrt...
Ein Mann winkt. "Fahren Sie rein!" Ein Klingelzeichen und nun sind wir...drin.

Es ist ein Ort der Vergangenheit. Auffahrt, Wände, Türen, Fenster - alles alt, sehr alt. Nur die modernen Autos stören die Szene. Aber dort, ein Oldtimer! Und... Wow! Ich lausche Mancinis Klängen! Audrey Hepburn ist ganz in der Nähe! Bestimmt!

Im Treppenhaus ein besonderer Duft. Audrey?

Wir verlassen das Parkhaus und überqueren die Straße.

Passanten --
das alte Kino
geschlossen
