The annual flower display in conjunction with the celebration for Saint Zita is on in Lucca right now.
As well as the display in front of the San Frediano church, the anfiteatro is full of gorgeous plants available for sale. It is a lovely time to be in the piazza.
The flowers will be in the anfiteatro until Friday this week.
Sculptures by artist Jimenez Deredia are being installed in various locations around Lucca. We found some beside the San Michele church and Piazza San Martino.
The art pieces will be on display until 10th September…plenty of time to find them.
The stunning casino building in Ponte a Serraglio will come alive tonight for the opening celebrations of Omaggio alla Donna.
Here is a sneak peak at some of the art on show.
List of artists showing
The celebrations get underway at 8.30pm and lead into 10 days of events.
I am happy to report that the lovely lady in the fountain in the park in La Villa has been restored and replaced after being damaged a few months ago.
It is good to see her back.
Borgo degli Artisti opened their art exhibition last night at the Hotel Regina in La Villa. The event was well attended and the art interesting.
The exhibition is open this weekend. Go to first floor of the Hotel Regina.
Vico Pancellorum has hosted an art event every year.
The beautiful church at the top of the village makes the perfect venue. The walk up from the bottom is worth the effort for the view alone.
Some of the old doorways and windows along the path would make good art subjects.
There was a large crowd in the church.
It is good to see these lovely old churches open.
There was an excellent choice of art on display.
Thank you Moe for taking the photos so we could share the event.
It is almost time for the annual art competition held by Borgo degli Atisti in the park beside Villa Fiori.
It is a fun day whether you are an artist or an observer. Come to watch the artists at work or set up an easel and start painting.
