Local festivals in Italy are a wonderful part of life. I love to attend the festivals in Bagni di Lucca in particular. One that is especially good is the living nativity. It was held this year in Monti di Villa.
The village became a working piece of art and heritage. Visitors were invited to walk through the streets and see how life was in times past. The residents all play their roles to perfection.
There is music and dancing and food, of course…this is Italy.
I was not lucky enough to be there this year, but 3 local photographers have captured the atmosphere beautifully.
First is Paul Anthony Davies,whose work I have shared with you before.
David Bonaventuri also takes delightful photos…www.davidbonaventuri.it
Valerio Ceccarelli was also there to capture the fun.
That was the donkey waiting to take his part in the final part of the event. Valerio captured the nativity scene.
Don’t you wish you were there to be part of things?
