Every year the local artists’ group holds a painting competition at Ponte a Serraglio called Colori e Sapori – colours and tastes. The grounds of Villa Fiori are set up with easels and tables and artists are invited to paint a view of the village. The artists line the river and some even set up on the river bed. Rosi braved the 40 degree heat to take some photos for me.
It wouldn’t be Italy if food was not involved. The hard working team of cooks and servers were there to make sure everyone was well fed.
Thanks Rosi for keeping me up to date with the happenings in Ponte a Serraglio.
The lovely lady from Villa Rosalena, a great B & B beside the river also wrote about Colori and Sapori on her blog. Take a look for lots more photos. She will show you the winners. http://tuscanyvillarosalena.wordpress.com
