Bella Ciao

So much happened in the last few days, it won't all fit into one posting. So we'll start with this one. Yesterday, the 25th April, was the Festa della Liberazione, where Italians commemorate the day they finally evicted the Nazis from their country. We went to the ancient walled city of Fosdinovo, where we celebrated with comrades young and old in the balmy afternoon sun. I won't comment much most pictures speak for themselves.



A multi-instrumentalist. In the video below you'll see him playing his head! He also plays old garden hoses.


Free wine!


Mini comrade!











Susan's new friend Franco (not the bicycle man)

What a lovely day! The pics show people having so much fun, but the videos are the icing on the cake...they give us a taste of the atmosphere. Was that Susan dancing?

Yes, we did have a great time! It is Susan dancing with her new friend. And the guy in the 4th video in the middle playing the squeeze box is our next door neighbour. Him and his band play traditional music from the region. If anyone would like a cd of theirs I'm sure I can organise that.

It looks like a fantastic day's celebration. Lovely to see the photos of everyone having fun, and videos too!
