could be fought this way...

but a celebration
of life
and love of pizza and pasta!

great photos and post. I feel like I'm there seeing it with my own eyes.


Hey there' one would think that it may take a few years before you become the intrepid photo hound of Festa's di jour.Next time round you'll be better prepared plastic clear bags in pant pockets at the ready. Able to photograph all matter of flying flour , sauce, grapes, tomatoes etc. Just being there I'm sure was a hoot and a holler to see.

*cough cough* OK now where's the big frying pan full of last year's olive oil now that everyone is infarinata'ed?


You're right. It shouldn't happen like that, but it does. You did make me smile because it rang so true. When it does, isn't just the best bonus to what was going to be a simple visit to a town?

(Loved the pictures too. It was worth ruining the camera for those.)
