Ottocento/ '800

Our big festival ended last night. We had a great attendance in the town for four nights. People cavorted, sang, drank, and generally had a good time. The Stoic One has a new there are many photos. Most of them need no explanation.

He went out earlier in the day to catch people practising before the crowds arrived. Here are some of the dancers.

Her t-shirt says Make Art with Love..

This is the dance instructor. The sign says Dance School. She is doing a run through before she had on her costume. I love the pose, the jeans, the hands.
I think is my favorite. It reminds me of a Degas painting. They were all so nervous before they went on.

Ok....this poor girl is in this contraption. Underneath her skirt is a dolly and a young man under her skirt rolls here around.

Here she is dancing....

There is something about Italian Mamma's.  Oh to be an Italian baby!!
To be continued....

  1. I love that last shot. The lighting is very nice. And I agree, that one photo is reminiscent of a Degas painting.
