There has been a series of wonderful events for children and their families lately at the theatre in La Villa.
Lots of people attended and had a great time. Well done Wanda!
It is great to see new activities in Bagni di Lucca. It is possible that there will be another series in the new year.
Drop by to see the Nativity scenes.
Don’t miss the market on 29th October…antiques, crafts and collectables.
Today it rained in Bagni di Lucca, which was disappointing for the Pinocchio festival. Despite the rain Pinocchio arrived on time in his red car.
A band followed.
School children and their families and entertainers came next.
The damp group arrived at the piazza in front of Circolo Forestieri.
The new mayor opened the festivities.
The children looked wonderful and each had a part to play.
I’m not sure who the bearded one was.
I think this is Geppetto at work on his wooden boy.
There was a band…
There were lots of stalls and things to see and do, but the weather kept people away while I was there. I hope the clouds cleared later.
This is a great event. Congratulations to everyone involved in putting it together again this year.
PS. The weather did improve later and Valerio Ceccarelli took these great photos. (See more on his Facebook page)
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.
The wonderful Pinocchio festival returns on 1st October.
On the same weekend there is an art exhibition presented by Borgo degli Artisti.
A fun weekend is coming up!
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.
