Art in Vico Pancellorum

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.

 

 

 

San Cassiano lights up

I have to share the beautiful photos by Paul Anthony Davies of the Festa Triennale del SS Crocifisso in San Cassiano.

The church looks stunning at night.

The street in front of the church down to Santina’s restaurant was lit up too.

The interior of the church is magnificent.

What a wonderful event! There are 25 villages that make up Bagni di Lucca. There is always something happening.

San Cassiano War Memorial

The War Memorial in San Cassiano has been lovingly restored. Too many lives were lost from the area. It is heart breaking to see the list of the names of those who died fighting.

Bands played, crowds came…people of all ages, there were speeches, there was food and there was rain.

I saw the restored monument last week and it is looking great. It is clear that these men will not be forgotten.

I wasn’t there today, as I am now on my way back to Australia for a few months. Thank you to Paul Anthony Davies for allowing me to share his wonderful photos.
