Village Art in Casola Spring Festival

FESTIVAL DI PRIMAVERA Ι April 25 – 29

For more than a century 3 groups of villagers have been competing in Casola Valsenio to win an ambitious recognition: the most attractive and interesting allegorical creation with living statues posing on artistic plaster architectures. A day and a night parade transform via Roma in a magic world made of fantasy, beauty and philosophy. All generations take part to the event.

Enjoy a few shots and let us know your opinion!

 

 

Castiglioncello ruins

Panoramica

On 26th December Cor, Bacio, Spotty and I visited the ancient ruins of Castiglioncello in the Santerno Valley, just half an hour from us. A charming little hamlet that made us dream. Would it be in Tuscany – actually it is! – but closer to Florence or Siena, it would now be totally renovated with a Spa and a 4 star accomodation, for sure! Fortunately it is not, but the need to save it from a progressive natural decline is there!

We took some shots to make you dream too!
