June 2nd Festa

These are mainly photos that the Stoic One took today during the celebration.  I thought you might be interested in some of the faces and activities of the people in our town.

The morning started with a Concorse D'Elegance of cars. What this has to do with the Unification day beats me.

We had all kinds of officials, carabinieri, religious ones and bands.

Band and their lovely white uniforms

Besides the 150th anniversary of the Reunification, we are also celebrating the completion of a river project that has intrigued the town.

Here is the before picture:

Here are the pictures from today.  The fact it was completed in time for the celebration was a miracle and a call for celebration itself.

We were all so happy when we were allowed to walk on the side walk.  It was one of those public moments in Italy.

Here are some faces of the people:

Did they just see that blond?

Note the shoes

A true face of  Umbria

The festivities concluded with free pork, water and champagne.  What could be better?
