Today, Saturday, we attended the local festival of masks in
We were not sure what they represented but the cow bells made lots of noise
Its cold in
This was a festival of masks and this group made a real impact as they walked about
Everyone was willing to pose for photographs
The Pagans arrived at the roundabout…
…and then lit a fire and danced around it in the street (no elf and safety problems here!)
The dancing continues while the traffic jams built up behind them…for once the Italians sat patiently in their cars without hooting
We understood this play quite well…and then realised it was in French!
Meanwhile cartoons depicting the mask festival were projected onto the Bastione di Saint Remy
And finally, the Umpa band played as we dance along with them on the way back home!
The music was very good and very silly (to go with the trousers)
