The annual festival to celebrate Pinocchio will return this weekend.
This festival is a lot of fun, something for everyone.
Last weekend in Bagni di Lucca was the wonderful event, Shelley a Bagni di Lucca…la poesia e il ballo.
The event was attended by people in costumes of the period when the poet Shelley visited Bagni di Lucca. A crowd gathered at Villa Web and walked to various sites in the area. The photos below were taken by Rita Gualtieri.
There was a dance at the casino in Ponte a Serraglio in the evening.
Look at the Facebook pages of Marco Pistolozzi, Valerio Ceccarelli and Rita Gualtieri for some wonderful photos of the well dressed characters.
I think the enthusiasm the partipants bring to these events is great. I wish I had been there.
Summer events continue…
The first one celebrates Percy Shelley, the British poet who spent time in Bagni di Lucca with his friend Lord Byron.
On 1st September there will be a concert in the English Cemetery where the renovation of tombs and monuments continues.

This is a list I found with lots of upcoming events…something for everyone.
This is a list of events in Casabasciana.
Outdoor cinema seems to be popular this summer. I’m sure these events will be well attended.
The beautiful pool in Bagni di Lucca was opened to much celebration. Thank you Rosi for taking photos and sharing the event with us.
It would not be an Italian celebration without food.
The pool is in the most magnificent setting with views across the mountains and has all the style of a 1950s movie. It is great that the renovations have enabled it to be open for at least some of the summer season.
Here are some more photos of the gorgeous pool taken by Elizabeth Nelson…a big fan of the pool.
Opening hours…9.00 – 19.00
